Flood relief for the Muska family

The Muska family (Jon, Suzann, Truman, Grace and Madeleine) experienced devastating flood damage as a result of Hurricane Harvey last week.

Although their home was initially spared in the early storms, the releases from the Addicks Reservoir left their neighborhood underwater. Now that the flood waters have receded, they have begun cleaning up and are currently working around the clock to replace and repair flooded flooring, walls, furniture, and appliances. Their home, like so many others in the area, does not have flood insurance.

The intent of this GoFundMe effort is to aid them in restoring and repairing their home to livable conditions. Without flood insurance, this is an enormous out-of-pocket sum. Our goal is to raise $15,000 to assist with purchasing construction materials and replacement of some furniture/appliances, although we acknowledge the total amount needed will be much higher.

Jon, Suzann, and their kids are an extremely kind, loving, and giving family. Even during this time of personal stress they have helped others in need as well. Please help if you can.

(More background as requested by GoFundMe:  I am Henry Hernandez, one of Jon's oldest friends, and I also live in Houston. The funds will be used to purchase building supplies for Jon and Suzann's repairs, including sheetrock, lumber, flooring and other hardware; as well as cabinetry and appliances if possible.  Jon and Suzann are the direct beneficiaries of all money donated here)
