Cole Family House Fire

On Thursday, March 22, AAJ Business Development Manager Shanise Cole’s home was severely damaged by a house fire, caused by faulty wiring. Shanise, her husband Brandon, her daughter Brelyn, and their dogs Bentley and Remy are safe, but have suffered the loss of almost all of their clothing, furniture, kitchen accessories, and other personal belongings.

Shanise and her family could really use help from the AAJ family to secure the essentials as they continue to deal with this devastating loss. With your financial contributions, Shanise and her family will be able to purchase new clothing, furniture, and other household essentials. 

Please donate generously to help the Cole family rebuild their home. Any amount is greatly appreciated! 

$1,000 donations will help replace beds, couches, and bedroom sets
$500 donations will help replace kitchen appliances, dishes, and silverware
$100 donations will go towards new clothes, shoes, and pet supplies
$25 donations will buy groceries, toiletries, and everyday essentials for the family

Other ways to help include sending gift cards for shopping at Walmart, Target, and Safeway or fulfilling items on her Amazon wish list:

Thank you in advance for your kindness and generous gifts!
