Family of 5-Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey had a 0.1% chance of affecting my sister in law's family, yet the levees were taking on too much water, water had to be released in their neighborhood to save the levees. They had to leave their home immediately taking almost nothing, while saving an elderly couple next door. They JUST purchased new flood insurance which needed to be in effect for 30 days before active. NOTHING will be covered by the insurance except their cars which are also completely destroyed. They have a house full of new furniture that is destroyed that they still have payments on. All appliances in the house new and destroyed. They desperately need help, any kind of help is so so appreciated. The funds will be spent on, securing appliances, beds, furniture, replacing toys, dishes, kitchen ware. They also need money for home repairs and basic necessities (shelter, food, water etc) I had to create this account because they would NEVER ask for help, they are such amazing people with 3 young children to take care of, their life turned completely upside down. She is a speech language pathologist who helps people everyday for a living, it's our turn to give back and let them know God and people are good!! Thank you all so much! I will individually thank everyone that donates any amount or shares this link!!
