Despins Flood Relief

Unfortunately, I have very sad and devastating news about the situation my family are currently living in these past several days and reaching out to anyone who can HELP THEM. The Despins live in south Burlington on Regal Road; Their street was one of the worst roads hit by Monday’s massive rain storm. As they watched the rain come down that late afternoon, their street began to take the shape of a river with rapids forming. After all was said and done, the Despins house was buried in 4’ of water. Dave and Nancy are probably in the area of $100,000 or more in debt due to this disaster with no insurance coverage specific to sewer back up. We are desperately reaching out to family, friends, neighbours and colleagues to help us in any way possible over the next several months. I am acting on the Despins behalf as the Flood Co-ordinator by making many arrangements to help raise money for them. If you would like to help our family or have suggestions, we are here to listen and are grateful for everyone’s support & generosity. We have set up an email address [email redacted] for you to leave your name and number, or you may reach out to me at [phone redacted] and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Please pass their story onto as many people as you can who may want to contribute & help us such as your family, friends, co-workers, businesses etc. In closing…please know, although they have lost ½ their home & belongings, Dave, Nancy, Keira and Charlotte are all healthy & safe and that is truly the most important thing. With Deepest Thanks, Jill Allen
