Help Chev/Kelly rebuild their home

Chev and Kelly Cromartie have been selfless, great friends to so many of us for a very long time.  Unfortunately, last week Hurricane Florence was particularly cruel to the Cromarties and the bottom floor of their home has been completely devastated.  They suffered 14-16 inches of flooding inside the home, which ruined their flooring, walls, kitchen, etc.  The only part of their home that remains in tact is the upstairs second floor.  They are facing months of repairs and there is a possibility that the home itself is not salvageable.  At this point, it may be well into the holiday season before they have any real resolution.  Chev and Kelly are the godparents to my only child and they have been some of the most generous people I have ever known.  When asked about the idea of a GoFundMe to help them during this disaster, they both declined... and the reason they gave was that they didn't want to be a burden to their friends.  Chevy eventually... and reluctantly.. accepted after I begged him for over a week.  So please... whether you can donate a dollar or a hundred dollars... please help this amazing family.  The storm took their home from them... and without our help, they may lose the home that they purchased less than 3 years ago.  Please.  Help.  No amount is insignificant.  Funds will be used for a variety of things, including debris removal, temporary housing needs, purchasing new furniture/kitchen appliances, flooring, cabinets, etc.
