Joan's Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund

Hi all.   My name is Joan Wehring.  I live in Oak Forest of Houston, TX 77018.  I live off of West T.C. Jester on the street directly across from the bayou.  I am raising funds to replace some belongings and repair my house from the Hurricane Harvey flood.  

I need to replace flooring throughout my house and put in a drain system.  I will also need to replace sheetrock and repaint.  I want to replace to nice area rugs I had and some other personal belongings I lost.  I never thought I would have to setup a fundraiser but this was the first time in 14 years I didn't pay my flood insurance due to some financial hardships in the last 2 years.  

Saturday night I was thinking it is raining hard and in the morning I can assess how it looks and decide if I need to put things up inside the home and if I needed to leave the house.  Well Sunday morning I woke up to water in my home.  I didn't think it would rain that hard in one night to flood my home.  Well, needless to say I had water throughout my house and me and my 2 dogs & 2 cats laid on top of the bed waiting for the water to go down.  M

y other dog was atop a sofa in the garage riding it out.

My hardwood floors are completely ruined, the sheet rock will need to be cut out & replaced and I lost some furniture and two very nice persian rugs.  I also lost some personal items.

I was in shock and didn't take pictures of the inside waters but got this one later after the water had gone down.  I am standing on the front porch looking to my front yard.

Please know that I truly appreciate any contribution.  Anything in excess of the repair/replacement costs I plan to donate to an animal rescue group.

Thank you for your time and contribution.
