Leni Hurley home Fire Blind limit insur & income

He has the shoes on his feet and clothes he has on. Every thing is wet and heavy smoke damage. Any help would be appreciated greatly!  Even 1 dollar counts When added to another dollar. Every one will be appreciated.  Any kind of  local help of new or used clothing. Maybe small amount gift cards like walmart to get underwear/socks. In need of Daily Living essential Items.  Leni is  a Blind friend that lives across the street. I have known since 1965  He is in need of shirts, t-shirts, long sleeve + flannel shirts, pants, jeans 32x30, tube socks, fruit of the loom underwear, Longer warmer Coat with Hood. And men's grooming and bath supplies.   Leni  has only limited social security and he is blind. He has lived here his whole life. He counts his steps to get around our small town.  He is 67.  I believe . He would never be able to live anywhere else. He has a part of the small town mapped out in his head. Still gets lost some times on cloudy days he can't feel the sun to know  east n west. The snow messes up his step count . When lost someone always helps him home even the kids all ages will help him home. The fire started in the kitchen and was flaming out the window. I could hear Chris yelling at him to get out and yelling for me to call 911. As Leni was turning to go back in the house. Flames were coming out the kitchen window as Leni left out the kitchen door. Kitchen is burnt through ceiling as is laundry. The fire was hot and was so fast.  fire went into attic rafters and joist damaged. Floor joist damaged. The house can't be lived  in .Probably nothing can be saved. Hopeful that we can find a mobile home  for lot. Mobile home lots next to his yard.   So thankful for our volunteer fire department and other fire departments and sheriff officers that came , seemed they had it under control in a  very short time. But such a hot fast fire  it damaged deep.  Our volunteer fighters  and sheriff departments put their life on the line with every call they go to time  after time. And  every day.  day after day , year  after year they are still here putting their life on the line for us. These firefighters and law officers done an excellent job.  And are dealing with the grief of losing one of their own. A very young  volunteer that  leaves behind a wife and children. He lost his life just a few miles away  driving to the fire.  Jonny Ivison gave  the ultimate in his pursuit of helping others.  Prayers for the family left behind.
