PLEASE HELP!!


At 11 a.m. on Monday, August 10 2020 Cedar Rapids was there, by 2 p.m. it was gone.  Monday’s derecho, a landlocked hurricane with straight line winds over 100 mph, has impacted every part of the city catastrophically.

Nearly every home has damage. Most big trees in the city fell. Most local businesses are closed. Every business is damaged. Most roads are impassable.

Oh behalf of my family in Cedar Rapids, I am requesting help for  my family, to help  repair their home and remove the trees that have landed on their home from the storm.

My brother, Marcus Ramirez and his wife Angela Ramirez's, home and children have been affected by this storm.   As of this Saturday morning, SIX members of the Ramirez family are still without electricity, AC, basic food items
, and gasoline to power their generator and yard equipment.

Their home isn't safe for them to stay in, and both of their children have had to go stay with family, until the home repairs are made. The longer they wait to have the trees removed from their roof and home, they more damage their family home will endure.

There is over $10,000 in house repairs that need to be made. And the cost of the tree removal, with estimates as high as $15,000.

 Our family is lucky to be alive from this storm, but still have many new challenges from the aftermath of the storm. Please help anyway that you are able. These are very trying times for our family and we appreciate you all for taking the time to read this and donate.

Xoxo
Ramirez Family
