Williams Family Fire Recovery Fund

October 21st, is my brother, Matthew's birthday. It was meant to be a day celebrated with smiles and laughter, while gloating over his win in basketball with his 14 year old son, DJ; getting cake rubbed on his nose by his giggling 2 year old daugher, Kayli; and sneaking hugs and kisses from his loving wife, LaShanna. Instead Matthew and his family have spent his birthday trying to salvage whatever belongings they could save of personal and sentimental value as the result of a fire that started next door which inevitability destroyed their home. All they have left are the clothes on their back, the support of their family, friends, Brothers in Arms, and the faith that God will see them through these difficult circumstances.

On behalf of my brother and his family, I am asking for any donations that you may feel inclined to give. The funds will be used to help support essentials such as rebuilding a small wardrobe, purchasing more school supplies for the children, furniture and food. With the help of his Air Force unit, the family will have meals prepped for them until they are back on their feet.

If you aren't able to help the family with any monetary donations, please shower them with prayers of good fortune and blessings.

Thank you.
