Help Jack Get His Paradise Back!

A loving grandfather and Navy World War II veteran needs your help. Jack built this home with his wife, Doris, who has passed away after 65 years of marriage. It was their little slice of paradise and he's always welcoming to whoever wants to share it with him on weekend trips. He definitely makes everyone feel at home making his famous pecan pie and pina coladas.

Jack took all the precautions he could before Hurricane Irma struck. However, his home received catastrophic damage. Unfortunately, he allowed his insurance to lapse due to the high cost of premiums. During the storm the roof was lost and there is water throughout the house.

Jack needs help clearing debris and covering his roof so, that there's not more damage caused by the weather elements.
