Four Families Flooded Out By Harvey

Hi, and thank you so much for visiting this fundraising page. I am trying to help my friends and co-workers, Jim Bob Benton, Steven Pace, Beto Maldonado & Patti Smith and their families. All four of them have suffered substantial losses as their homes were underwater due to Hurricane Harvey.

If you know any of them at all, you know that these people regularly give their whole to help the most in need among us, the poor, the homeless and even unfortunate kids.

There are unfortunately countless people who will need help after this storm and I'm sure many of you will be asked to dig deep in response. But I'm asking you to help these families. To lose the homes they've worked their whole lives for, is devastating.

As with so many issues related to natural disasters, money is needed to rebuild. In this case, lots of money. Everything from electrical wiring to flooring to mold cleanup- we are looking at a HUGE need here.

They would never ask for help. But we hope this GoFundMe campaign will help bring immediate relief to these families.

No amount is too small and everything helps!

All proceeds from this fundraiser shall be equally split between these four families, Patti Smith, who is also a CPA will be the named administrator of the account and will distribute funds as they come in.

GoFundMe has requested that the following information be placed here on the front page for everyone;

Who am I and what is my relationship to the beneficiaries?
I am David Hosie, I have worked alongside Jim Bob, Steven, Patti and Beto at PTS / SST. I know their families from company social events, beyond being co-workers, they are my friends.

How will these funds be spent?
The disbursement of funds will be at the sole discretion of each family. You can only designate one person to make withdrawals from this fundraiser, Patti Smith is the designee. Patti Smith will distribute the funds equally between the four families.

How do I plan to get the funds to the beneficiaries?
Patti Smith is the named designee and will be responsible for all distributions, a full accounting of all funds received and distributed shall be posted on this site.
