Kizziah-Hitachi Family Fundraiser

Our friends, Chris and Terue Kizziah-Hitachi and their daughter Sasha lives off Standifer Gap Rd. in Chattanooga, TN. Last Sunday, a tornado ripped through their neighborhood. Chris, Terue, Sasha, and their 2 dogs took shelter in a basement space in their house and survived the tornado but they lost the roof & windows on their house and had a car severely damaged. They are planning to rent a camper car to live until they can fix/rebuild the house by themselves.

We are trying to raise funds to help pay for the rental fees for the camper and some of the home repairs.

These are honest and hard-working people. Chris teaches and coaches at Redbank Middle School for the last 15 years. He also works as an HVAC and a handyman during weekends and shool holidays. Terue also works at Redbank Middle School as a cook. Just like her husband Chris, she does sewing and upholstery on weekends and holidays to support their family.

Their daugther Sasha is a gifted high school students who attends classes at Chattanooga State. She is a talented flutist for Chattanooga Symphony & Youth Orchestra and National Youth Orchestra of the USA.

So please help them start to rebuild their lives today. It will be very hard without your help. Thank you very much for any donation you can afford to contribute.
