Lets rally around Matt Stakes

This is for Matt Stakes and his wife Chasity.  Matt is a Field Technician for Cox Communications. His house was struck by lightning on January 27, 2018 with his wife inside.  Less than a year ago he lost his only son and now he lost his home , and his wife is at the hospital burn unit with 2nd and 3rd degree burns across her body.  She will be undergoing numerous surgeries and will be hospitalized for awhile. All his pictures and memorbialia of his son are gone along with all their belongings. They are so thankful that they are both still here but yet, have lost everything else.  Please..let's give them what we can.  They need immediate things..clothes, food, toiletries.  All they have is what they are wearing, so we need to act fast and will figure out the rest in due time. We need to take care of Matt and Chasity. They need our thoughts and prayers and anything we can do to help them in this time of need. All the money donated will go directly to Matt and Chasity.   Please, if you need more information, contact us and donate what you can. Every little bit helps. Thank you!
