Anne Griffiths and Family

Anne owns and operates  a restaurant called The Mess Hall in Covington Township, PA.  She is the mother of 7 children.  Two of which are in the service (active duty).   Once her bills at the restaurant are paid she puts profits into a charity she has started called Help a Friend.  The charity helps homeless veterans and those that return from active duty who have fallen on hard times.  Recently her restaurant was broken into and the thieves stole an ATM machine and smashed the front doors of the restaurant.   Anne was in the process of wanting to purchase a home to renovate and help homeless veterans with a place to stay until they get back on their feet.   She is always so generous and so selfless.     Unfortunately this evening tragically  Anne's home caught fire and it was a complete loss.  Everyone was able to escape unharmed.   I do know she was in the process of gathering furniture to help veterans in need and sorting it at her home.   You can truly not find a more caring, compassionate, selfless and generous human being.   She always puts the needs of others first.   I hope you will consider helping her and her family in their time of need.
