Rebuild from devastating fire

My name is Otis, and this is a picture of my sister Denise.  On October 9, 2017, Denise, her husband Ted and their five children are ok, but their house, cars, and horse stabel was burned to the ground from a tragic fire in Oildale (Bakersfield) Ca.

They lost everthing, the house, cars, tractors, clothes, furniture, and serveal horses. To learn more about the fire from this link,

My niece Autumn is in the interview.

Unfortunately they have no fire insurance, and now they have to start over. One of their only sources of income was the stable.

Their immediate needs are a clothes, a place to live, car, and food.  They lost it all!

My sister is a beautiful person; wife, mother, and friend.  Her stable was also a refuge for abused animals.  She has given so much to the community and always gives a helping hand to everyone she meets.  Please help my sister.
