My name is Stephanne Marsh and I would like to share the story of my sweet brother and sister in-law. Chris, Mindy and their two precious sons, ages 5 and 2, just purchased their first home in June of this year, in Conway, SC. Chris works 2 jobs and Mindy is an elementary school teacher. They did not have flood insurance, as they were not in a flood zone and the bank nor the insurance company recommended that they purchase it. Hurricane Florence brought total devastation to so many, Chris and Mindy included. Their new home was flooded with just over 3.5 feet of water. The waters receded enough on October 5, that they were finally able to get into the home to assess damages. They lost many personal things in the flood, but the greatest devastation was the destruction of the home that they had worked so hard to purchase. As you can see from the pictures, they will need major mold treatment, as the house already has extensive mold damage. They will also need to purchase new insulation, drywall, paint, interior and exterior doors, moldings and trim, appliances, a hot water heater, and flooring. The funds raised in this campaign will be used specifically to purchase these items and to restore their home to a livable state.
I have been overwhelmed by the generosity of people nationwide here in our home of Wilmington, NC. I thought that just perhaps, through the generosity of friends and strangers alike, we just might be able to help them put their lives back together.
Thank you for taking the time to read Chris and Mindy’s story. We are grateful.
