Harvey Recovery Fund -Shannon Baker

Jeremy Gaige here, Field Engineering Manager in Texas. 
We need help.  One of our field engineers here @Varonis (Shannon Baker) has been affected in a major way by Hurricane Harvey.  The rest of the Varonis staff here in the Houston area (there are 5 of us in total currently) were all lucky to only have minor issues to deal with.
Shannon has almost a foot of water in his home currently and he has no flood insurance.
What will be required for recovery and the costs?
1)  Wait until it is safe to return - flood waters recede, necessities, etc $500
2) Remove standing water from home: $1,500
3) Massive cleanup/removal of any flooded items including carpets, furniture and removal of drywall, wood panelling and insulation 20 inches above high water line $2,000
4) Replace items above $3,500 

Locally, we will all be looking for ways to help Shannon in any way we can to help him recover as soon as possible from this tragedy, but we want to help him get jumpstarted quickly so we should strive to deliver help by the end of this week.  If each of us @Varonis donated just $10, we would be well over our goal!
