Helping Brother's Family After House Fire

Today, 11/29/2020, my brother Tony lost his home to a fire in the attic of an attached neighbor.  While the structure is still standing, the walls and everything in between have been destroyed.  Tony has been raising his family in this home with his fiance Melissa, and their two boys,  Bruce (4yo) and Trevor (1.5yo). 


The floors are covered in thick ash and water and the drywall from the ceiling is currently laying across the entire house. All of their belongings are destroyed from the thick smoke and water from dousing the fire.  I am hoping to help him raise money, not to replace furniture and things, but for necessities like clothing for all of them (especially warm clothing as winter feels like it is already here), food, toiletries, blankets, etc.  Just things to help them get through the next few weeks while everything is figured out.  

I know that he would not want to reach out himself, as he is not the type to ask for help, but sometimes we all need a little assistance in crisis.  Any little bit helps, and thank you for anyone just looking, sharing, or donating.  Family is very important to us, and Tony is one to give you the shirt off his back, so he is definitely deserving of a little help to come his way.
