Rachel’s Family Relief Fund

Hurricane Michael devastated Panama City on Wednesday, October 10th, with widespread destruction.  Most of Rachel's family lives in Panama City, including her Mom, Miss Judy Beth, brothers Scott, Mike, Trey, and Ray, sisters Lizzie and Sondra, and other cousins, aunts, and uncles, along with all of their families.  
Each one was impacted by this incredible storm in different ways.  Some of the damage is pictured.  

Like me, I know a lot of people are wondering what they can do to help.  This money is going to go directly to each family as they try to rebuild.  It will go to lodging as they remake their houses, equipment (generators, chain saws, etc), money to cover loss of employment as a few of them don't have jobs to go back to since the businesses were destroyed, and loss of possessions, property, and other items that are not covered by insurance.  Its impossible to put a dollar amount on that right now, but every bit helps.
