I'm hoping to raise money for my grammy Mary who's 72 and lost everything she owns to flooding from hurricane Florence. The water of the Black River raised so fast she was lucky to escape with a small amount of clothes. We are so blessed that my grammy, uncle, and their two dogs were able to evacuate the flooded area safely but unfortunately we can't say the same for her home and everything inside. She had just moved to Harrell's NC from WV last year and was finally going to have a small trailer she could call her own after renting her entire life. She had only lived there for a year before she was devastated and her whole life was turned upside down. She didn't have much, but she would be the first one to give a neighbor the shirt off her back if they needed help. She's currently living in a small camper with her two dogs and son who has to stay nearby to be near his work. They don't have running water and only have a small donated generator for power. Friends and family are doing everything they can to help but her need is so great its overwhelming. We would like to start rebuilding her life as soon as the flood waters recede. We know we have a difficult and long process ahead of us. We will update everyone and take more pictures of the inside of the house as soon as we can safely enter the home, which is still mostly submerged under water. Its urgent that we get the house livable as soon as possible with winter coming soon. Unfortunately she was unable to afford flood insurance due to her very small monthly income that barely covers her necessities. Any donation is greatly appreciated. Thank you to everyone that chooses to donate and supports us in this heartbreaking journey. 

I would also like to explain the pictures I posted along  with my Grammys story. 

The first picture is of my Uncle Ned, me, my son Anthony, and my Grammy Mary on this past 4th of July.  The next few pictures are of when my Grammy first moved into her house last year. The camper that’s shown is the camper she’s currently living in along with my uncle and their two dogs until we can figure out the next step. The rest of the photos are of her home as of right now and the surrounding area that’s flooded. 

Thank you!
