Evans house fire recovery

I am the mother of Preston, Mollie and Peyton and also live in Marietta, Ga. John and the children lost everything they owned in a house fire that started at his house at 4am early in the morning of October 28th, 2017.  The electrical fire started in Preston's bedroom and he woke and ran to tell John.  They scrambeled as the house filled with smoke and both got out with the clothes on their back and Preston's phone.  In a matter of minutes, it was engulfed in flames. Mollie and Peyton were spending the night in Gainesville at their grandparents, and that truly is a blessing.  They have lost everything and any amount, great or small that you feel inclined to give, will help them rebuild their lives, home, and the contents within.  All funds donated will go towards replacing all clothing and shoes, bathroom toiletries, toys, books, crafts, bikes and racing gear for Preston and Peyton. Furniture, dishes, kitchen items, linens, towels. And for Mollie, her beloved hamster, Isabelle who did it make it along with her love of shopkins, crafts, slime making, and books. Peyton will miss his nerf guns most and his collection of ninja turtles, paw patrol, and Avengers. John has been named beneficiary of these funds and he will begin using them immediately to replace these necessities and essentials. Thank you and God Bless you.

UPDATE 10/31: Your generosity and donations of clothing, shoes, toys, and books has been a tremendous blessing.  While some needs may still arise in the coming weeks and months as John sorts through everything and gets it back into a temporary rental home, for now, the immediate needs for clothing have been met and his cup runneth over.  We are speechless and overwhelmed at the continued outpouring of support, love, and prayers.  Contributions to the overall fund are still welcomed as John will continue funneling those toward the additional contents as needs arise.  If you have any questions or desire to still help in other ways, please reach out.

I'll keep these listed for down the road but these needs have been met in plenty and we are humbled.
Here are the clothing needs:
Preston (14) - Adult M tops, size 32/33 bottoms.  Size 11 shoes, Boxers size M.
Mollie (9) - Youth XL/16 tops and bottoms. Size 7 shoes. 14/16 Underwear.
Peyton (4) - Youth 6 tops and bottoms. Size 13 shoes. Size 6 underwear.
John - Xxl shorts and tshirts. Size 12 shoes. 42/44 waist

If there is anything else you have to share with the kids or John and need to contact me, please do so.  Thank you for your continued prayers as they rebuild.
