Help Kim rebuild after Harvey

Like many others along the Texas Coastal Bend, Kim and Phil's house was severly impaced by Hurricane Harvey. Their house had over 16" of standing water and substantial roof damage, which has caused even more water damage inside the house. All of their appliances and furniture, and most of their personal belongings, were destroyed.

The house (both inside and out) is already starting to mold, and they have been working tirelessly to prevent any further damage. Their out-of-pocket costs for repairing/rebuilding, and their temporary displacement, will likely be substantial, and payments from insurance will probably not be received in the near future.

Many of us feel helpless in times like these, but we have a chance to give back to Kim and Phil, who have done so much for so many of us.

Please know that any little bit helps and funds withdrawn funds will directly go to help Kim and Phil get through this difficult time by securing a temporary place to live and/or using funds to rebuild.

Thank you,
Kelly Darnell
(former UTMSI student, and Kim's colleague and friend)
