Kaleena Kelley is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Matthew Kelley.
Hello friends and family! Kaleena Kelley here from Arlington, Texas. As you know, Hurricane Harvey hit South Texas in a hard and devastating way. There are many families who had to evacuate, others who stayed to wait it out. Unfortunately, either way, damage was done, possessions were lost. It is to my despair that part of our family has suffered due to this natural disaster. My brother-in-law, Matthew, sister-in-law, Ashley and their two teenage boys, Luke and Andrew found themselves fleeing from Harvey last Friday. They had just moved south to follow their hearts in the teaching profession. Thankfully, Mark and I were just three short hours away. Although Matthew and Ashley were able to get out before Harvey struck, they have since found out that their home and belongings have been either ruined by the floods or stolen by looters. To make matters worse, two days after fleeing, they had to put their 12 year old dog, Thumper, to sleep due to his organs shutting down. Needless to say, the past week has gone from bad to worse for the Kelley family. They have not asked for anything, including this GoFundMe, but a place to stay. Their spirits are high and they are making plans for improvement. If you find it in your heart to help out fellow friends and family, please consider donating to this GoFundMe. Every little bit helps; nothing too small or too big. Prayers for the Kelley family and all those affected by Hurricane Harvey are always appreciated! I know this would mean the world to them! What a wonderful surprise it would be to help them start their rebuilding in such a generous way. All funds will go directly to Matthew and Ashley Kelley to help with moving costs, down payment on a new rental and to relace items lost (furniture, clothes, etc). I will make sure your contributions are deposited into their account so that they have direct access. Thank you!!!
