Hurricane Flo ruined their home.

Hurricane Florence has devastated NC's coast.   We're all helping out through volunteerism and donating through local charities but we have the opportunity to rally around 1 family and change their outcome.  I chose the Underwood's to be that family.  Mark & Zena's home flooded. The house will need a lot of work to get it back in living condition.  Currently they are sleeping on an inflatable bed at their families home so they are safe.  However, they are by no means comfortable.  (I am very thankful they evacuated) Their walls need to be cut, floors need to be ripped out, furniture replaced, etc.  Anything that was on the ground has been lost.  Their roof leaked onto their sons brand new bed. (comforters, furniture, shoes, toys - all gone)  Luckily, Mark is skilled at this type of work.  However, he even lost his tools during the flood.  Zena owns a wedding planning services company. You can imagine how that business will do over the next few months until the beach gets back to normal.  They need our help to get them back on their feet.  Money alone won't be enough but it'll at least help them purchase what's needed to get their home back in living condition.  From their Mark can get to work helping others in the area repair their homes.  Let's rally around them and donate what you can.
