Help for Michaelangelo

On September 7th Hurrican Irma struck the US Virgin Islands & caused widespread destruction. That day changed the lives of every resident of St Thomas. My childhood friend, Michael Wise has lived there for years. For the past 7 years Mike has had sole custody of his 13 year old son, Michaelangelo. Every day Michael, his older brother Jeff and Jeff's son Cody help to repair & clean up the island. This has caused a real struggle for Mike. His son, Michaelangelo sits home alone every day. No power, no TV, no internet, no school. His school is not expected to be reopened for at least 6-8 months. Crime is on the rise as resources dwindle.
Mike's nephew, Jeff's youngest son, Dylan Wise has agreed to open his home to Michaelangelo.  Dylan is a 23 year old realtor living in Marcellus. Michaelangelo is about to become a MUSTANG! He is an island kid who wore uniforms to school. I believe he has seen snow once in his life.
This is where we can help. He will need clothes, winter boots, jackets, mittens, shoes etc. Dylan will need to feed a teenager. Michaelangelo will need school supplies, field trips, lunches - All the stuff that goes along with being a 13 year old kid. 
Let's come together and show the whole Wise family some love & support. Let's help make this horrible situation a little better for this young man.
Michael, Dylan, and Michaelangelo will need community support to help them through this time.
Thank you so much for all the help, love, and support.
