House Fire - Let's Help April

Thursday 11/16/17 there was a horrible and strange fire that started in the afternoon while April Ivey was at work. It started inside the walls of her new condo and luckily someone saw smoke and called the fire department. April did not know her home was in flames until several hours later when she was called by the first responders.  She was shocked. April moved in just two months prior and just finished getting her home nice and cozy and perfect. She spent a lot of time and money getting it set up for her and Tia. Luckily no one was home and no one was injured. However, they lost a lot and are now displaced and very upset. April has worked so hard to provide this new home for her and Tia, who just started college this year. Luckily, Tia had many of her things with her at college but the fire still took so much from them both.  Everything in Tia's room was detroyed.  It is hard to imagine how it feels to have so much taken from you in just a few hours. It's devastating.  I started this GFM page to help them get their lives back together and help cover costs they will incur over the next few months as they try to rebuild.  Please help me show these two amazing women that our community is there for them.  They will need everything replaced. Clothes, furniture, kitchen items, home decor, and more.
