Hurricane Help for Mr. Arnold

Dear Friends and Family,

Hurricane Harvey became personal to the Arnold family. Beaumont, Texas is Tre's home town.  He was born there and still has many family members who live there. Tre's father, Earl, Jr.  lives on a woodland property in Silsbee, Texas,  that was inundated by the last torrential rains that poured over the Beaumont, Texas area.  He is currently in a shelter and waiting to go back to his property to see what is salvageable.  We are so very thankful that he and his dogs are safe, but without expensive hurricane/flood insurance, rebuilding will not be possible. 

Tre' will be heading out to Silsbee to help when the area is clear for visitors - hopefully this month. We want to be able to bless his father with the essentials so that he can begin to put his life back together. Tre' will be taking your donations with him when he goes to help his father start rebuilding. Funds will be used on Earl's Jr's basic needs -clothing, furniture, necessary building materials - even stock  a pantry  for him with some food and personal hygiene to hold him over for a while.  He will need temporary housing, so even renting a trailer until the house is liveable would be a tremendous help, if enough funds make this possible. Please consider a donation of any size to help him get back on his feet. SHARE this with your friends and family.

Earl Jr. is an amazing giver and will give you the shirt off his back in a second, which might make receiving a little tough, but he will still need some funds to get him through the next few weeks and months.  I will update with pictures as soon as he is able to get to his property.

All of your love, prayers, and support are appreciated!  

Tre' and Donna Arnold and family

To those who don't know us personally, we live in Oceanside, CA . We have raised our 5children here, are now grandparents to 4, and are members of Summit Christian Church in San Marcos, CA. Much of Tre's family lives in the Houston, TX area and many of them had different degrees of flood damage to their properties . This GoFundMe campaign is geared where it is needed most. - Tre's father in Silsbee, TX.

Thank you  and God bless you!
