USC Grad Students Flood Fund

Amanda Robinson, Dennis Fix, and Justin Hardee, Grad students at USC were awakened by the smell of gas on October 4, 2015.  When they opened the basement door, water had risen to only three steps away from the house.  We now know that this flood will be remembered as a catastrophic flood in years to come.  They gathered a few belongings and two dogs and went to find higher ground.  It was only a matter of hours before the water had reached the roof of the house.  They are fine but everything  in the house, including most of their clothes are gone.  They would appreciate any donations you may be able to give so that they can recover. Thank you for your help.   They will use the money to get furniture and household items for their new place.

Go Fund Me has asked that I explain my relationship to the students who we are raising money for.  I am Julie Robinson, Amanda's mom.  The donations will be split between all three roommates.
