Purdum Disaster Fund

As some of you may know my brother Troy Purdum and his family have suffered a devastating house fire on November 19, 2017.  They have lost everything but the little bit of cash that was salvageable.  Thank God all humans and animals made it out safely.  I am setting this account up on their behalf.  If you know my brother you know he would give the shirt off his back to help anyone in need.  His wife ran a daycare out of their home.  They had all kinds of kid related items that were lost.  Those kids are also affected by this tragedy.  With their house destroyed her income will be lost.  Their 10 year old daughter lost everything.  Their grandchildren spent 90% of their time at their home and have also lost everything.  It is heartbreaking thinking of all the things they will not be able to replace such as photos, heirlooms, childhood memories.  Although the small community we live in has pulled together with clothing and food donations (which is absolutely amazing and greatly appreciated) they will need alot more to rebuild.  Today is the start to a new beginning for them all.  By the Grace of God and the help from you all they will recover.  I know this is a stressful time of year for all and everything received will greatly be appreciated.  God Bless you all.
