Eric & Jen are one of my favorite couples in the world. High school sweethearts from Pittsburgh, they have worked hard to create a beautiful home for their family. They have two amazing kids, son Tyler who is almost 12 and daughter Sydney is almost 7. Kind, loving, give you the shirt off of their backs people. They have been hit hard by Hurricane Harvey in Katy, Texas. Just today they were finally evacuated by boat to safety. They escaped with the clothes on their backs and one backpack each. Their dog Lila is with them too.
The first floor of their house was completely flooded, their property destroyed, cars damaged. They are going to need our help in the days, weeks, months to come.
Until they are able to get back to their house, it is unknown exactly what they are looking at as far as damages are concerned. Right now they are displaced. They are staying with friends and hoping to get the kids to family in Pittsburgh as soon as possible while they assess the damage.
From the very basics: shoes, socks, pajamas for the kids, to the coming months of repair and possible temporary housing, the Crivella family could use any support we can offer.
This is my way to help all the way from Maryland my dear friends who I've known for so long. As funds become available, the Crivella family may access them as needed. First thing on deck is to be able to purchase a plane ticket to Pittsburgh for their dog, Lila so she can stay with Tyler & Sydney with family. Other immediate needs include basics such as clothes and shoes.
Please donate any amount you are able. Thank you.
Love you, Crivellas! So grateful that you are safe tonight.
