“Help me bless the Hayes Family”

27526404_15178856390_r.jpegCory and Jenn Hayes need a break, and I hope you’ll help me bless them.  With the recent cold spell in south Louisiana, the pipes burst in the walls of one of the bedrooms and caused extensive water damage.  When Cory ripped out the ruined Sheetrock, he found that the pipes had been leaking for many months—possibly a year—causing a sludge of toxic mold to have grown in the walls and underneath the laminate flooring in the bedroom (see photos).  

Unfortunately, their homeowner's insurance does not cover mold, and this is dangerous stuff!  Even for just the water damage, the deductible is so high that Cory is having to do all the work himself.  With a full-time job teaching at St. Joseph Seminary College plus seven kids, it’s a tall order.

I’d love to give the Hayes family a hand with the expense of the materials and maybe even with some professional mold remediation.   The estimate for the water damage alone, which rotted out the bathroom floor, is $16,000, but $10,000 will cover their deductible (We originally thought it was $7,500, but water damage has this higher deductible).  Perhaps they can take care of some of their other urgent needs, too!

Please help me bless them with any donation you’re able to afford.  They haven’t asked for this, but I know it would give them the encouragement and support they really need right now.  Thank you so much, friends!
