Hodges/Gollahon Fire Recovery Fund

On Thursday, August 3, 2017, my sweet cousin and her family lost everything in a devastating fire at the home they were renting in Paulding County, Georgia. Thankfully, no one was injured. However, they lost all of their possessions.

Karissa & Michael need to replace their personal effects, buy clothes, computers, and household goods for themselves and their 5 children (Jasmine-13, Bethany-12, Caden-11, Noah-10 & Jannisia-8), as well as find a new home. 

They are overwhelmed by the love and support from friends and family. In an effort to help, we are hopeful that you will consider a donation, big or small, so that they can start to rebuild and get their lives back on track. Your support will be incredibly appreciated as they try to cope with this loss.

Please feel free to share this post. We all want to do what we can to help this amazing family.

Thank you.
