in-laws house destroyed by IRMA

As some of you may have heard Hurricane Irma has destroyed my in-laws house and all of their belongings. Thank God they were with us and my family at BPEI!

Manuel and Luisa Alfonso are my husband Yeimy’s parents; Ernesto Gonzalez (90 yo) and Gladys Alfonso (84 yo) are his grandparents who lived in their house as well. Yeimy’s mom cannot work and his dad is retired bringing in approx. $400/month.  His grandparents retirement helps pay for electricity, water and groceries.

They are temporarily staying with my husband and I at our house until their house gets rebuilt.  Their house had two units which paid their mortgage approx $1600/month.  The tenants moved out and Manuel and Luisa do not have funds to pay the mortgage. We contacted the bank and all they can do is forbear 3 months, but at the 90 day mark they would have to put up the full amount, which does not help (Fannie Mae).
The money donated will be used for 6 months' worth of mortgage until their house gets rebuilt. This process can take anywhere from 6 months to a year, or longer. 

If you have anything to spare; a couple dollars, it would Really help them out!

Any donation would be greatly appreciated.

You can contact me for info on donating.  Thank you!
