House fire leaving family homeless during holidays

We are asking for donations to help very good friends of ours whose home burned down today. If your looking to donate anything for Christmas holidays this would be an awesome blessing. These twin boys won’t have Christmas otherwise! Any donation is appreciated along with your prayers! 

 Holly Whittey, her adult son Randy and his 7 year old twin boys, that she’s helping him raise as one is autistic, 53126172_1607403921131907_r.jpeglost their home and belongings. They desperately need a place to live preferably Pearl, MS area as soon as possible . Her employer has secured them a hotel room for 2 days, but they don’t have any prospects after that. They were renting the trailer they were living in that caught fire. A ceramic tower heater in her bathroom was plugged in with an extension cord and it was off. The breaker must have flipped or something and it sparked at that connection. She was at work and her son was home sick thank God or the whole trailer would have gone up. I will post fire pictures tomorrow when they can get some in the day light. Their clothes, the twins clothes, furniture and pictures etc. Christmas was also hidden in her bathroom.  Not sure if anything can be salvaged, It’s all black and it’s doubtful.
Right now the most important thing they need is a home. They were really very lucky!
