Mobile Home Community Flood Victims Relief Fund

As the remnants of Hurricane Delta made their way through North Georgia last weekend, the storm produced 8 to 10 inches of rain. As many of us know, along with these rains came a lot of flooding to the local areas. By making this post we hope to bring assistance and relief to some people who were affected within Habersham County.

    In a small family oriented neighborhood just outside the Clarkesville city limits a little over half of the Lunar Eclipse mobile home community was nearly destroyed. Seven of the twelve mobile homes and their grounds were flooded. Two of the homes were washed off their pillars and overturned. Some of the homes had as much as four feet of water on the interior walls. Most of the resident's automobiles were also flooded and are now inoperable. 

    Some of the residents were trapped inside their homes while others were trapped on their roofs. Rescue crews used boats to get the residents to saftey.  No one was seriously injured during the catastrophe.

Twenty-two people ranging in ages three months to near eighty, along with four family pets, have been affected by the floods. The homes need to remodeled due to the possibily of black mold emerging. There is no running water within the mobile home community, at time of post. Some people lost all of their clothing and anything electronic in their homes, such as their childrens school laptops. 

    With this post we are asking for financial help for the families. All proceeds will be used to purchase the building materials required to restore the homes back to a safe living enviroment for the parents, children and pets who reside at the Lunar Eclipse mobile home community.

    My name is Matthew Sims. I do not live in the mobile home community where this incident took place.  I reside in Demorest, GA which is about 5 miles away from Lunar Eclipse. I manage a vineyard for a local winery in Clarkesville, GA. I know some of the people who live there and they are good people. I am trying to help these people because I feel obligated to help my fellow man/woman in their time of need provided i can do so without material injury to myself or family. Don't you?

    No donation is to small, anything we can give them is better than nothing.

Any donation recieved will be greatly appreciated!
