Family of Five's House Burned Down




On Tuesday, June 27, my husband and three kids and I came from having dinner at my mom's house. When we arrived, our home was completely engulfed in flames, and when we were finally able to have the Fire Department come and put out the fire, we realized that we lost absolutely everything we had. My husband and I live paycheck to paycheck. He works 50+ hours a week at minimum wage to put food on the table while I stay home and take care of our three children-ages 5, 4, and 2. I cannot work due to the fact that I suffer from seizures and epilepsy. My husband was set to start school in a few weeks, but now almost everything we know is totally up in the air. We cannot fathom that this has hit our family, but we are keeping our heads up. We are asking for $25,000 in 30 days in an effort to get us on our feet, reestablish our housing, handle what is to come with insurance and costs, and replace all of our clothes, goods, furniture, and supplies that were lost in the fire. Anything helps, and if you are able to donate anything that is not money, please let us know as we are thankful for anything we receive. Thank you to all, and God bless.
