Family loses everything in FIRE

Jessica is a single parent of 4 wonderful children.  On September 23, 2014 around 1:30 PM Jessica received a call at work from a friend that her apartment was on fire.  When Jessica arrived at the apartment firefighters were working as hard as they could to put the fire out.  The fire started in one apartment and traveled across the building to 5 other apartments including Jessica's.  After the fire was out the fire department gave Jessica 20 minutes to enter the apartment on the main level and take anything she could get.  Luckily she was able to get all of the food out of the fridge and freezer...but that was it.  Jessica has 4 wonderful children; Josh (13), Jayden (10), Angie (7) and Lexi (6).  They have lost everything including furniture, clothes and other personal items.  We are starting this page to help Jessica out to get back on her feet with money or donated items.  Any little bit will help.  It is much appreciated by us and by Jessica.

Thank you!
Amy, Kristie and Teresa
