Lisa and John Hurricane Irma Fund

My name is Toni Latch and my dear friend Lisa of over 28 years, and her husband John DeSantis recently lost their home in Hurricane Irma in the Florida Keys. I have known Lisa my entire adult life and was maid of honor in her wedding to John. It is heart breaking to see the loss of their home and even harder to hear Lisa talk about how their lives are affected. Lisa and John are both hard working individuals that fell in love with the Keys after a visit. They sold their belongings here in Delaware and started a new life in the Keys. They referred to their home as "Paradise" and loved everything about their new community. They are trying to salvage any little thing from their home. The roof of their home was completely ripped off exposing all of their belongings to the elements. In addition, flooding consumed their 1st level. They are at a complete loss. Currently, they have friends that are driving a camper down to the Keys for them to use as their home is uninhabitable.  They have no electric or running water and are getting necessities from the Red Cross. I am trying to help them in any way possible and would like to raise some funds to help see them through until they are back on their feet. The money raised will be used so Lisa and John can purchase clothing, bare necessities, food, and to start the rebuilding process. Any amount no matter how small will help them tremendously, even if all you have are prayers.  I appreciate you taking the time to read this and would like to thank you for anything you may have to offer.
