Andrea Strommen & son house fire

At approximately 2 AM on Monday morning November 27th, Ms. Strommen's DeKalb county house caught fire, and was quickly engulfed. Thankfully, she and her 5 year old son, Colin, made it out in time. They sustained minor smoke inhalation, and bruises from going out the bedroom window, other that that they are fine. The family dog, unfortunately, did not survive.

Mentally, it's tough, especially for a single mother with a little one this close to Christmas. They literally lost everything, even the car. The house is a total loss, and will have to be bulldozed and rebuilt. I loaned them a car to use as long as they need to, until the insurance wheels start turning, so they are good from a transportation standpoint. They have been housed in a hotel, so they have a place to stay. The insurance company is working on moving them into an apartment while the house is rebuilt.
It's the everyday things that we take for granted that they will need financial help with. We all know that insurance companies move at their own pace, and Andrea needs financial help NOW. Clothes, toys, dishes, cookware, towels, bedspreads, shoes - all those little things required to restore some semblance of normalcy to her and her sons' life when they are placed into temporary housing cost money. They add up, and if we had to go replace all of the daily essentials in our lives, the cost would surprise us.

Please help Andrea and her son in their time of need.
