Help Calen recover after fire

On January 3rd, a massive fire burned Calen Kennedy's home in Graves County Kentucky to the ground. This home was first built by his father George in the '90's and was a beloved space that held many cherished memories. Luckily, Calen was at work when the blaze began as the house was burnt to the ground in a very short amount of time, and no animals were inside at the time. The cause of the fire is still unknown, and as there is virtually nothing left of the structure now, it may never be discovered.

While countless priceless memories were lost in the blaze, most importantly, everything Calen owned was lost to the fire.  This includes many things he used for his personal business, a business he built from the ground up starting when he was a teenager. Calen needs to locate new housing, buy furniture, dishes, clothes, and begin to build up the equipment he needs to run his business again. Any amount you can contribute would be greatly appreciated to help him start to rebuild his life. 

As he is still looking for housing, donations of phsyical goods are not needed at this time, but once he has found housing, donations of furniture, dishes, and other househould items would be greatly appreciated as well.
