Aid for the family of a house fire

A group of women in Dallas "adopted" a single mother with two children through the Head Start program at Christmas to bring "Santa" to the family in their new apartment.  One week into January, the apartment burned and everything the family had was lost, including all of the furniture and provisions that we had provided at Christmas. There was no insurance. The family is in a shelter while attempting to find a new apartment. The family needs cash for rent, a deposit, and utilities. We are attempting to raise $2000 for the expenses as well as the cost of food and beds for the children.  We would need the funds within the next month to help this family.
