Poist Family Hurricane Relief

Jason Poist and his family (wife Jackie, Trent age 10, Kaitlyn age 8, and their pets) evacuated from Hampstead NC to escape hurricane Florence. Thru news coverage, neighbors, and friends we saw and heard that his home has been entirely destroyed. Arriving back  to see for themselves they discovered it far worse than they had imagined. The entire house is submerged in flood waters. Years of memories, children's art projects, treasured belongings, and all necessities, all gone. The whole family is left with nothing but the items they were able to fit in their 2 vehicles (basic necessities and a couple outfits) to evacuate the storm. With the evacuation being extended for so long and no access into town they have been out of work for sometime and don't know when they will have the funds to start rebuilding their life or be able to return to work. Thankfully they have temporary shelter with family.  Any donations at this point will be greatly appreciated along with continuing prayers for the rebuilding process. 
Donations can be made via PayPal by sending money using the friends and family selection so there is no fee for your donation. The link for our account is PayPal.Me/Poist 
Or you can send the donation through go fund me. 
If you would like to send any other type of donation (gift cards, school supplies for the children, etc) please contact me directly and I will give you the information of where to send your donations.
Thank you for your generosity, kindness and continued prayers for our family and all those affected by this horrible hurricane.
God bless
