Help 4 John Barris Hurricane Harvey

Hello everyone. I'm Richelle Smith. My son John Barris lives alone in Houston, TX.  His house is completely flooded due to Hurricane Harvey and he has lost everything in it. He had renter's insurance, but was not covered by flood insurance. There are no nearby relatives. His siblings and other relatives are in Los Angeles, and I am in Atlanta.

He needs housing , clothes, etc. as soon as possible. He is a teacher at Miller Intermidiate School in Alief ISD. He has a loving heart and has gone out to volunteer to help other Hurricane Harvey victims nearby. John has always bent over backwards to help others in need.

Please help me to help him to get his life back and continue his quest to serve our children and communities by offering your assistance during this time of crisis.  All funds will be transferred into John's bank account from via gofundme at his request. Thanks and Blessings.
