HELP THELBERT after the hurricane!

Many of you know Thelbert and have been touched by his loving and generous spirit. For those who do not, he has been a member of our family since my Dad was a kid. For decades Thelbert has taken care of our family farm, but has been a caregiver for everyone in the family and our community, as well.

Thelbert has spent a lifetime being a helping hand to so many others, while never asking for assistance in return. But now he and his family are in desperate need of support.

Thelbert's home in Grays Creek, NC (several miles from our family farm) was DESTROYED in Hurricane Florence several weeks ago. His roof caved in and for days the heavy rains flooded throughout his home. Unfortunately, mold has taken over and it is not currently a livable space.

Everything Thelbert owned was ruined by hurricane related flooding, including clothes, toiletries, furniture and kitchen supplies. He will need all of these items and more urgently, requires a completely renovated home.. or possibly even a new one!

Every penny donated will go directly to support Thelbert- helping him in this time of crisis as he rebuilds and recovers. Thank you so much for your generosity!
