Hurricane Irma Relief for Family

I am a single mother of a beautiful 12 year old daughter and work at the Florida Key SPCA in Key West, Florida. We share a home with my mother who helps our family around the house. 

September 8th, 2017 my family and I evacuated the Florida Keys due to  CAT 4 Hurricane Irma. We are lucky that we are safe at the moment but our home sustained damage. The exterior looks okay but 3/4th of our roof came off which has exposed all our furniture and belongings to the elements. We will need to replace our beds, furniture, clothes and other household items.

I am asking my friends and family to help by donating to our family during this time of need. Once our place is repaired we will slowly begin to replace items with these funds.

You all know that I have worked in the Animal Welfare field for 15 years and don't do it for the money. I do my job because I LOVE ANIMALS and want to protect them. It hurts me that I can not get back down there to help the animals that don't have been misplaced by the storm.

Currently we are not allowed into the Keys to start clean up and more rain is expected which means our belongings will continue to get destroyed. We will have to live in a temp home while the house is being repaired which luckily FEMA will pay for. But the hard part will be finding a place to stay due to everyone looking for a temp place to stay and all the animals I have. 

I want to Thank everyone in advance for helping. If you don't want to donate to the Go Fund Me page then we also are in need of gift cards for clothes and personal items. Let me know if you would like to do this instead.
