Ashley's Fire Recovery

My sister, Ashley Hitt, had a catastrophic home fire last night where everything in the house was completely lost due to a kitchen fire that got out of control in very short order. Luckily she made it out with my niece and nephew along with their 4 fur babies, but little else. Their focus was entirely on human and animal life and didn't make it out with anything more than the phones they had with them and what they were wearing.
Luckily all made it out safe, but the damages are unimaginable in a time where there is already a global health epidemic making things much more difficult. I am doing my best to assist in any way possible but since today is my birthday, I wanted to put out a request to see if I could request some monetary help in lieu of anything for me or the charities I typically try to help.
The Red Cross helped by giving her some immediate funds to assist in getting changes of clothes and necessities, but those aren't going to last long. The kids were getting ready to start online learning this morning and now have their entire world flipped upside down. I am looking for help for her and the kids however you may be able to help. I am always hesitant to ask for money, but if you are in a place where you may be able to help it would be greatly appreciated. If you have clothes, furniture, or any other items that may help her get back on her feet please reach out and let me know and I will help facilitate finding a way to pick up any items and get them to her. Right now I am looking to get her put up in a rental house, but it will have zero furniture, so anything like bed, refrigerator, washer, dryer, etc.. would be a HUGE help! 
The funds here are to help pick up the slack for whatever we aren't able to borrow or have donated, plus having some money to eat with until things calm down.
Thankfully there is insurance, and she is meeting with the adjuster today, but that won't cover everything and who knows how long it'll take to see any of that money. I very much appreciate anything at all you can help with no matter how small!
