A Family Rebuilding after Harvey

I am Amber Droll and my extended family members Edye and Danny Patterson lost their home and its contents due to Hurricane Harvey.  Edye was born and raised in this area. She and her family reside in Orange County in the small town of Orangefield where they live the simplest life.  Orangefield has never had flooding due to hurricanes and flooding was not expected with Harvey. Because of this fact,  Edye and Danny had no flood insurance. That means that this will be a very long and costly road for them. FEMA will also provide some assistance, but at this time, we have no idea in what magnitude. 

Edye and Danny have a couple of friends in other regions of the world who want to help and suggested that I create this GoFundMe Page in an attempt to make online giving easier.  I have friends and strangers alike reaching out to help this family. Anything will help tremendously and know that anything you can give is greatly appreciated. Donations will go towards starting all over from bottom to top (demolition to a new structure to furnishing the new structure). 

Edye does not have many pictures of herself on her Facebook, but I wanted those who do not know her to be able to put a face with a name. I am proud to call her family and I appreciate you all in advance!
