Recovery from Harvey Flooding

Hurricane Harvey's relentless rains over filled 2 nearby reservoirs, the Addicks and Barker which led to large releases of water that put our neighborhood under water since 8/28. This neighborhood has never flooded previously, so I was not insured.

I lost the entire contents of my 1st floor (furniture, electronics, microwave, books, food, personal items like family heirlooms and photos) and my car was completely submerged. It will likely be the middle of September or later before I can look at actual damages and recover my 2nd floor contents and my clothes and much later before I can move back in after renovations.

I need to replace my living room, dining room and some of the kitchen contents, including TV, Blue Ray, Surround Sound, sofa, love seat, side chairs, bar stools, etc.

I estimate that I will need funds on or around November 15. 

Without my car, I am also taking a 20% hit to my income as I drive for Uber & Lyft part time. My car is yet to be inspected by my insurance carrier so I am in limbo. The carrier will not be able to help until they can actually see my car which is still submerged.

Funds would help me refurnish my home and restock my kitchen.  Also funds would help offset temporary income losses and help me to get back on my feet.

I would be extremely grateful for any amount that you could donate. Thank you in advance for your help.
