Housing and help after fire

LaDonna is a life long Darden team member. She started in the production area of the Olive Garden over 20 years ago. She worked her way to her position now as our Culinary Manager. She is having a very difficult time. She lost her mother to cancer in April. Lossing her mother hit her very hard, as you can imagine. Now just 4 months later her house has caught on fire and may be a total loss. Red Cross has stepped in and is helping but the help is very temporary. About 6 days of housing to be exact. While grateful for the help, they are quickly approaching a place of real need. We are asking for help from our Darden family, future, past and present. Please give what you can. Anything helps!
