Help The Pongrass Family rebuild

Our home was flooded during Hurricane Harvey on August 28. We were rescued the next day and were only able to bring a backpack each with a few personal effects.

I am 74 and retired on a fixed income. My wife’s home based business was also affected by the flood. It will be months before her embroidery business will up and going.

FEMA has helped a little. But because of our financial situation, we are doing much of the work ourselves. Volunteers are also providing labor but we have to provide rebuilding materials. It’s difficult to ask for help, but we need the help. We would appreciate any donations you can make to help us rebuild our home.
