Chris and Desiree Graham relocated to Houston, TX earlier this year for work. They moved there from Colorado and before that were living in Washington. This hard working family just found out a few weeks ago that they will be welcoming a sweet little boy into the world in February. This growing family couldn't be more excited! They had plans to move into a new home for their growing family, but as moving day approached, so did Harvey. Moving plans were cancelled and they had to hunker down and hope for the best. As the storm continued, they realized they would have to abandon their home and all of their belongings. While they do have renters insurance, they did not have flood insurance. Which means this wonderful family is left to replace all of their items on their own. They will need beds, furniture, clothing, and new appliances. They will also need to start purchasing things for their child's arrival- a carseat, diapers, clothing, a crib, etc.
I met Desiree and Chris when they were living in Longmont Colorado. Desiree and I worked together and quickly became close friends. She is such a loving, genuine person and an amazing friend. Her and Chris both work full time, Chris works in Management at Car Toys, and Desiree is a part of the Mattress Firm family. She has been with the company for over four years, starting first in the Tacoma Washington area, then transferring to Longmont Colorado, and now working in the Houston area.
Any donations will be directly given to Desiree and Chris and will be used once the total damage is known. Any extra donations beyond what they need will be donated to others affected by this storm.
Chris and Desiree are both amazing friends that would give the shirt off of their backs to help their loved ones. Please help me in donating (or sharing!) and helping this couple get a home established before their baby boy arrives in a few months.
Thank you for your love and support of this beautiful family!
