OOB Family in need in our community

Many of you know Michelle and Arny Knight from our local community.  They are two of the kindest and caring people I know.  They have owned their home for 17 years and were due for some much need updates.  They realized they needed to update their electrical and from there decided since the walls the were going to be ripped out, now would be a great time to add a bathroom and a few other updates needed to make their home more functional.  They hired a local contractor in February and he started to work for them in March. They felt they knew and trusted the contractor.  Over the course of almost 4 months Michelle and Arny gave this contractor 48,450.00 and this is what they received for the payment given for the final product.   In addition to that they also bought some of the materials and did some of the labor, as it was a labor of love for them.  A lot of the work that has been done will need to be redone and this is just adding the stress of the whole situation. 
Michelle and Arny used all the money they had saved to do this renovation.  They have been living out of boxes for 4 months and their lives have been turned upside down.  
I'm asking for our community to come together to help them finish this project.  They would never ask anyone to help them and are pushing forward as best as they can.
