Help Lauren's Parents after House Fire

If you can donate to help my parents, Beth and Craig Allen, it would be much appreciated. 

The end of 2020 decided to strike our family with this unforeseen event. Late evening on Tuesday, December 29th, my family was notified by neighbors that an explosion had occurred and the house was on fire. We were later informed that this was likely caused by a gas leak. Luckily, my parents were rescued by the police and transported to the hospital, but much of the home was destroyed by the fire, and the conditions have made it unlivable.

My parents are homeless and only have what clothes are on their backs. They will need the basic necessities (food, clothing, temporary shelter) for the next few months, but if they could be blessed financially, any amount would help while they pick up the pieces. 

Any help will go a long way. We are unsure of their path at the moment, but any amount is appreciated.
