Keator Family Flood Recovery

My Step-Son Adam, his children, their mother Erika and his mother Holly were displaced due to Hurricane Florence.  They all evacuated before the Hurricane . But Adam and Holly's home was flooded with at least 3 feet of water running through their single story home. 

Because they were not there , not able to return right away as Wilmington was shut off. They have plans to return to Wilmington this week the house has been kept closed and now full of mold. 

They have lost everything that was in the house.  Ayvah is in middle school and her school was flooded and still closed. She has also lost all of her school supplies and her clothes for school. 

They will be needing to find a new place to live and need to replace furniture, clothing, toys etc. 

Adam did not have flood insurance to help at all. He is trying to keep working which keeps sending him out of town. Let's see if we can help take some of the burden off of them to find the money to put on a new place to live and replace all of their belongings. 

Every little bit will help even if you share this post. 

Thank you everyone.
