Flood Victim (No Flood Insurance)

On 5/12/14, we experienced devastating flash floods in Medina, OH. My father's house, my childhood home, was flooded and dad doesn't have flood insurance. My father has been completely devastated by the financial burden that this has put on him. He has worked hard all his life to provide for his family and now is faced with the prospect of having nothing left and no way to fix his home. He could really use some help! The house is uninhabitable and EVERYTHING needs to be replaced, all appliances, drywall, carpeting, furniture, furnance, dryer . . . all the things that we take for granted day to day. Family heirlooms and their most prized possessions are completely gone. Please help!  Any amount will help, no matter how small.

Just hours after the flood: flood water still fills the bottom drawers of the refrigerator

Hours after the flood: carpets, beds, and blankets full of mud and water

One and a half weeks after the flood: family possessions have been removed, carpets are ripped out and the wallboards are being cut down to prevent the spread of mold
