Family takes in children and need a little help

I have a family in need of a hand up, not a hand out. They have done so much on their own without asking for help and finally reached out to me in need of our church's ministry "Hope Repair". Unfortunately, they are to far outside of our area for us to help them but their story struck so close to home for me that I knew God put them in my path to help. This is a mother and father of 2 that has taken in 2 more children that their mother has pasted away and father is not in the picture. The children were being raised by an aunt and uncle that were using drugs in front of the children, the child witnessing and being subjected to abuse, and even molested. The children were placed with them at the first of the year. They do not have enough room to accommodate 2 more children so they have been working continuously to build an addition onto their home to provide these babies their own room because for now they are in the livingroom. We have been out and looked to see how we can personally help this family and were amazing at how much they have done. However, with covid the mothers work has been impacted and the father works more than an hour from home so their time and funds have ran short. We have put together a team of 10 men and women helpers to do the physical work to help get this addition finished but need help with funds. I have over 200 friends on my Facebook. If each of you could find it in your hearts to just donate $5 (or more if you feel lead) then we could hit our goal to help this family with supplies. They need to purchase tile, trim, doors, paint, and light fixtures for sure and maybe a few other items. If you can find it in your heart to give just a little, we as a group and help this family A LOT. Thank you in advance for whatever you can do and even if it's not within your means to give, if you can pray to bless this donation of time and funds, we all would greatly appreciate it. God Bless!
