Riveness Hurricane Disaster Fund

My name is Diane and  I've created this account to help out my dear friends Garret and Sherry.
On Saturday, August 26th, Garret, Sherry, Stefan and Anna woke up to a house full of rising water due to Hurricane Harvey. They quickly realized they would have to evacuate their home as the water rose to chest deep. Stefan managed to swim down the driveway to hail the boat of a  kind-hearted volunteer that took them to a shelter. They, along with their pets,  are now safe with friends but are left with literally only the clothes on their back. They have lost their car and all the contents of their home.
True to the Riveness character that we all know and love,  they are staying strong in their faith and managed to find the ability to laugh despite the devestation. They are eternally grateful to those who led them to safety.  

Their needs include those for clothing, replacement of Garret's phone, electronics necessary for Stefan and Anna's school, alternate living arrangements,  home furnishings etc. 
Any amount you can give is much appreciated in their time of need. 
God Bless
