Help the Smiths

Yolonda Smith has been renting a house from us for about two years.  Yolonda has been attending classes online and looking for a job while getting  by  the best she could with whatever she had, trying to make a life in a home for herself and her three children Caren (8), Carmen (12), and D'Marco (19).  On Friday evening, December 12,  she received a phone call telling her her house was burning.  It appears that the home was burglarized and then set ablaze. Everything they owned was destroyed, and nothing was insured, 

They have their car and the clothes on their backs, and that's about it. The American Red Cross provided a hotel room for them for three nights, which ended Monday.

We know there are people who are willing to help those who have a real need if they only know who they are.  100% of your donations go directly to Yolonda and her children. Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
