Blake & Kelsie

As you all know, hurricane Michael hit Florida with a devastating force earlier this week. Many residents were expecting a Cat2 hurricane, but in a matter of hours it was quickly upgraded to a 5. It made landfall as a Cat4 but by then, it was too much of a surprise to far too many. 

One particular family hits close to home for me, and I am asking for your help. Blake and and Kelsie Bowler, along with their 2 children Madison and Clark, were here in East Texas visiting Kelsie’s mom Meredith for her birthday. They heard the news about Michael, and while they tried to get back to Florida quick enough to salvage those unreplacable items, the storm had been upgraded and circumstances would not allow them to return home. 

Their living quarters have been completely decimated. All they have left is what they packed in their car for their family road trip to Texas, not expecting when they left to even be concerned with grabbing precious keepsakes. That of course will never be replaced. 

I am asking for your help. It may be $10 or it may be $100. This family has nothing left and they have 2 small children. We can help by donating money so they are able to replace items like clothes, food, and many other pieces. It’s one family of many, but it’s a way we can help. They will be living in East Texas until they can return home, and it will be weeks before the damages can be assessed.

Imagine if you lost everything in your home without having the opportunity to even grab what you needed. It’s hard enough as it is, but I urge you to please consider donating to this cause.
