Wallace Family Vs. Hurricane Irma

The Wallace Family has faced Hurricane Irma, and survived! However, as everyone is safe and unhurt, including my brother Doug, his wife, Tasha, and 5 of their 6 kids Cody, Brittney, Kyra, Lexie, and Sammy, (Emily is living on the other side of Florida), and their dogs Lacie, Zuki, Yogi, and Tator Tott, their house didn't survive.While boarded up in the house, Irma caused the roof to rip off, forcing the Wallace Family to escape into the night. Thanks to a good friend who came to help shuttle the kids, they were safe.And then the morning came... and time to evaluate what is left.The Wallace Family may have lost the battle, but together they will win the war.And this is where I humbly ask for help.All their important paperwork, such as birth certificates, etc were safe. They packed up most of their clothes, in preparation. But it appears that everything else is a loss. They spent all the extra money they had on preparing for the storm, sandbagging, and boarding up the windows. Never considered that they would lose the roof. If you can donate a little bit for this family, it would mean the world for them. Doug normally works 6 days a week to keep their family taken care of, but in trying to prepare before the hurricane, and repairs before the next bout of rain comes, no work means no paycheck. Right now, I am asking for help to get them into a new house, with a rough estimate of first and last deposit, and money to help replace some of their clothes, and basic necessities.

Some additional information...  I live out in Lummi Island, Washington, and this campaign is set up to benefit my sister in law, Tasha Wallace, who is the beneficiary of this account. She is the only one who can withdraw funds.

I had to change this due to difficulty for Doug to connect.  Everything is still going to the same family.
