Family lost everything in fire

My daughter, Brandi Rogers has struggled over the years to raise her son, Alex by herself and has done an amazing job. A year ago she met someone who treated her well, and they blessed me with a second grandson the day before my birthday this past July. They live together in Greenfield TN, raising their three boys together. They didn't have much, but had each other and their faith. 

Brandi works at McDonald's at night, and David stays with the boys taking good care of them. Last night, while Brandi was at work, the home they rented burned to the ground. David and the three boys were able to escape with just the clothes on their backs. They lost everything. 

As a mother, I want to make it right....I want to fix it. But it is hard to do that when you live across the country from your family. The least I can do is to help them replace all that was lost. 

Through the gracious generosity of many people around the country, clothing is in the process of making its way to Greenfield. However, the hard part is to come. Furnishing a new home. It is my hope that this fundraiser can raise money that can be used to purchase those items that we take for granted in our home...small appliances, dishes, linens, games for the boys and even some small toys for the little ones. 

We are very thankful that the family escaped with their lives, material items can be replaced. My daughter, her bf and those precious grandchildren are not replaceable. 

I thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide to my family.
