Mother of 5 loses EVERYTHING in massive house fire

EMERGENCY ALERT: We have a family in need and we need your help!

Shenneka Hutchinson a single mother with 5 children lost EVERYTHING including their puppy when their house caught fire on Saturday (10/12/19) in Fayetteville, NC. When they returned home from a local concert they were devastated to learn they no longer had a home to return too. The Red Cross has provided them with displacement assistance and provided temporary housing at a local hotel in Fayetteville NC on Ramsey Street. Unfortunately, the Red Cross funds have run out. Since Saturday, October 19, 2019 EMPACT One Foundation a local IRS recognized 501c3 non-profit organization has been assisting the family through our EMPACT Community Coalition. During this time our coalition partners have provided resources to include but not limited to lodging fees, clothing, and food, but these resources are in danger of running out if we are unable to secure your support.

EMPACT One Foundation is currently working with the family to find housing and other needed emergency resources, and we are currently in need of your help and assistance in the following ways:

1. We are looking for a landlord and/or realtors who are willing to work with the family with the first months' rent and security deposit. The family does receive section 8

2. Assisting the family by donating funds to secure the 1st month's rent & security deposit. Funds can be donated via Cash app @ $empact and in the reason section put “Hutchinson Family”

3. Donations of clothing, food, personal items, school supplies, and any other resources. (Ages of children are 16, 12, 10, 8 & 6).
