Many of you may know Grandma Gloria! She has been living in Hoston for over 49 years! Hurricane Harvey brought forth flooding she has never experienced before! Sunday night when the storms started to rage the rain came and she noticed the streets flooding as well as her front yard. Before she knew it the water came into her master bedroom first and then she went to check her porch and the water had already gone past her front portch and into the front door. Eventually the water was coming in on all four sides of her home. Her home had water in every single room and covered the home. She was then rescued and taken to her son' s home Steve and Dianna Benavides. If you know Grandma Gloria you know that she loves to take care of people. She retired in 2007 from taking care of children for over 40 years and in that same year she lost the love of her life Carlos Benavides. They were married almost 50 years! She now cares for Roland Benavides Jr. He has a very rare chromosome condition that has him completely handicap. She cares for his every need and does it with so much love and grace. It's a difficult job for an 81 year old and she does it with such energy and passion. We ask for your donations because she has no flood insurance. She has lost most things in her home. She and Roley are living with a family member and greatly appreciate any donations that are given.
Any donations we recieve will go towards work done on her home. She needs new sheet rock, flooring, cabinets, furniture, plumbing work, electrical work, and expenses for being displaced. The Benavides family sends their love and gratitude for the help given to Grandma Gloria. Thank you for your love and support and please keep her in your prayers during this difficult time.
