Grandparents in Time of Need.

Hi everyone,
My grandparents are in a time of need. My grandfather was a Mathematics professor at Assumption College for over 30 years. Starting in February 2017, my grandfather suffered a major stroke. As the next few weeks went on, he suffered through another four strokes and was in and out of intensive hospital care. These strokes led to a heavy speech impairment and loss of motor function. Luckly, he is slowly recovering but not able to return back to teaching at Assumption College. Starting in July 2017, while my grandparents stayed in assisted living, their house underwent major renovations to make the living conditions more suitable for his circumstances. Early October 2017, renovations were mostly finished and they were able to start moving back in. All seemed well until November 10, 2017. There was a massive house fire of the second floor that destroyed most of their home and belongings. They are now homeless and looking for a place to stay. With both of my grandparents not working, they are unable to pay for the damages and repairs.
I am creating this page to raise whatever funds I can to help them repair their home and the further medical treatment my grandfather needs. 
Anything helps and is greatly appreciated. The goal is to at least raise $2,000 for them. Hopefully we can get enough donations to help ease them in this terrible time of need. 
Thank you to all that contribute, it is greatly appreciated.
