Fire Recovery Fund For Carissa and Family

Hello Family, Friends, Co-workers and anyone reading this post.  In this uncertain time, we know that many people are facing hardships and we are extremely grateful first of all for you taking the time to review this post. 

On the early morning of Thursday July 24, 2020 my good friend Carissa Hooker and her family (her husband and 13-year-old daughter) had a house fire that was devastating.  We are thankful that the family and pets made it out safely.  This has been an over all shocking experience as they have lost all of their personal possessions as well as being without a place to call home.

Carissa and her family are just amazing people always there to help anyone out, whether someone to talk to, giving some food or water etc.  We are raising funds on their behalf to help fund the purchase of essential needs such as food, clothing shoes, temporary housing, reserves for furniture, bedding, kitchen stuff, future stable housing etc. so that they can start getting back to some normality under the current situation of this and the pandemic.  They were renters and did not have renter’s insurance so there aren’t any claims to file to help in their situation.


Victims of fires face tremendous emotional stress and financial costs, and we hope this fund will help alleviate some of the challenges that that they are facing as they try to move forward and rebuild their lives. We know everyone’s going through this pandemic and could also be facing challenges as well, though I would like to let you know that we are extremely grateful for any donation you are able to help out with.  As a community together we can help out this family during this difficult time.
