Home lost to over night fire

On the night of July 8th a fire took our home and all that was inside. We are grateful that no one was injured, but we are now left with nothing. We need to rebuild our lives. We need to buy all the large and small things. We need to find new housing, new furniture, shoes and clothing for all the family. 
Marcos and I (Mandy) have lived in Brooten for the past 7 years. We both grew up in a border town Eagle Pass, TX. Our children (in the picture) are Krystal, Angelina, Isaac, Mya, Adal, and David. Much of our extended family still lives in Texas. We love our community and we plan on staying to rebuild our lives here in Brooten. With the money we raise we will put a downpayment towards a new home and purchase new furniture. If there are any funds left we can then work on buying new clothes and shoes for the family. We have been lucky to have some support of donated items to give us a few changes of clothing for the time being. 
Thank you for reading this and we greatly appreciate anything that you can offer to help our family.
