Help My Sister’s Family Reestablish

Over the holiday season, actually on New Year’s Eve, my sister and her 3 children lost their home due to a fire. They sat and watched their home burn to the ground on New Year’s Eve around 4pm. They all got out safe and that’s the important part but they lost everything they had to their name. None of them had coats on their bodies, one even went without shoes, and it’s one of the coldest winters Indiana has had in years. They’ve received some donations of clothing to warm, shoes and few toiletries to get by. But this is the aftermath....... I just keep sitting with tears rolling down my face cause I can only imagine what she’s going through. My heart breaks for her and my nieces and nephew. She did get a call this morning and they had found the keys to her car so she does have a car again!!! Some people have been trying to give her food but she doesn’t have anywhere to cook at this moment. I’m starting this campaign so that we together can get her in another house to call home, pay a couple months rent for them as well as the deposit, and to get all the utilities on. They will need furniture so they can have places to lay their heads at night. A donation of ANYTHING would be a blessing to help get their lives back to normal. Also if there’s anyone that knows of any 2 or 3 bedrooms for rent please let me know. Once we get her a place we can work on household items because at this moment she doesn’t have anywhere to put to much stuff. Thank you so very much for your time and donations and may you have a great upcoming year.
