Help for My mom, affected by HURRICANE SALLY

HURRICANE SALLY help for my mother, Doris, who is struggling

On Wednesday, September 16, 2020, category 2 hurricane hit Gulf Shores, AL-a town 30mi from Pensacola, Florida, in the panhandle. It was a slow moving storm that dumped up to over 2’ of rain in most areas and has caused terrible,  major flooding. All of the people in ours, and surrounding areas,  have been affected dramatically. There is a lack of power, water, Very scarce cell service and limited internet service as well.

My mom, Doris, lost her job in March of this year,  due to  COVID 19, and lost her health & life insurance 30days later.  Unfortunately, the storm claimed the life of  her 2nd husband,  who perished in the storm. Needless to say, bills are piling up quickly, and without his income, my mom faces a difficult road ahead-emotionally & financially 

We are doing what we can to help her but my husband and I have both lost our jobs and been laid off (he lost his job also in March; I lost mine in July). We now have very limited resources, ourselves, barely keeping food on the table for us and our 2 small  kids.

Our family needs help in ways most can’t imagine.-depending on the kindness and generosity of strangers; Resources,  our family simply doesn’t have to give now. Once they start The work of cleanup after the storm, she will have the out of pocket cost of burying her husband; the need for money to help rebuild her home, the cost of replacing her car (which was only covered by liability insurance); clothing and food, not to mention, future expenses due to Covid AND now, Hurricane Sally. When I spoke to my mom briefly, and told her what I was gonna do, her response didn’t surprise me at all.-She asked that I ask for assistance for her friends and neighbors who’ve been affected,  as well 

Our family is now relying on the kindness of strangers to help, in this difficult time. We’d appreciate anything you can do to help-In addition to monetary donations, we ask that you pray for the folks in these areas-that everyone will be able to return to a normal life, soon. All money raised in this fundraiser will go to help my mom and others, within our reach, to assist in food  and clothing; burial expenses and obviously, rebuilding their lives and replacing my moms 20yr old car-we want to help as many and as much as possible.  

Thank you in advance for your help! May God bless you and keep you safe. In his name, we thank you- #AlabamaStrong #HurricaneSally #GodBlessUs
