It takes a while for the river to go down. They weren't able to get a truck there in time. All of their possessions are inside. Allison and Kim came to New York with a small suitcase and their two dogs. They will need money to rebuild and renovate their house, pay for temporary housing, buy clothing, furniture, and household items. All funds will go towards these needs and will be deposited into an account in their name . I don't yet know how much they will need at this time.
Allison is an elementary school teacher in a local school district and Steve works for a car dealership in Wilmington. Zac and Kimberly are in college. The Benders regularly lend a helping hand to those at work, school and in their neighborhood and are very grateful for all the support they have received back at this very difficult time.
