Help the Busbys Rebuild

For many , Hurricane Harvey was a nightmare that unfolded on CNN or the Weather Channel.  The storm was on your "radar" for just a few days, and then it was over.  But for the Busby Family, it is far from over.  
This family of three lives with the devastation of Harvey on a daily basis.Their single story home was flooded with about 3 feet of water, for several days. Originally from the Mississippi gulf coast, the Busbys have seen their share of hurricanes, but nothing like this. 

The worst part is that they do NOT have flood insurance. The home has never flooded before and flood insurance is not required for the area.

When the waters finally receded, the devastation was revealed. The flood had destroyed clothes, furniture, floors, cabinets, appliances and walls. The Busbys, along with volunteers, removed the muck and gutted their home. Simply put, they moved nearly everything that they owned to the street for garbage pick-up.

The news cycle has moved to the next story and most of the  local volunteers have returned to work and their lives.
More than ever the Busby's need your help. The cost to rebuild their home is estimated at $60,000 and that staggering amount does not include appliances, furnishings and personal items that are lost.  All donations - of any size - would make a HUGE difference.

We can't thank you enough for taking the time to read our campaign and helping the Busbys rebuild after this tradgedy.

May God bless and keep you, as we seek to serve others together.
