Family Loses All in House Fire

Peggy and Bill Harris's family home caught fire from a fireplace explosion this morning at 9:00. This tragic fire spread up the chimney, through the attic and into the entire house on this snowy icy morning and is a total loss for them. Their daughter Amanda and granddaughther Lindsey Davis also live in the house with them. Lindsey is a sophomore at Rockmart High School. They literally have lost everything but the clothes on their backs which is really hard to grasp. Everyone was able to safely escape, but all of their belongings did not make it. Please help this sweet family with anything you can in this difficult time.

My name is Jessica Harris, Lindsey and my younger sister Madison have grown up together. Your donations will be used to help them get back on their feet with immediate needs such as food, clothing, continuous bills, and so much more. Peggy, Bill, Amanda, and Lindsey have no where to stay in this time of need. This sweet couple and their family will need to find a place to live so these donations will also assist them in deposits or hotel room fees. As the insurance for their home is processed, your donations will help them compensate for the loss of everything and help them regain some items. I will be handling this account on their behalf and sending the donations directly to this family, that way they have one less thing to keep up with at this time. Thank you ahead of time for the tremendous amount of support you will be giving this family. I will post an update hopefully within a couple of days and through the next couple weeks about their progress and with specific clothing sizes in case local people want to donate any items. Please continue to keep them in your prayers during this time of loss.
