Rob & Michele Ball Flood 2020

Rob and Michele lost their home and most of their possessions in the flood on May 16, 2020. Rob and Michele are wonderful people that are caring and quick to help others. Now it is our turn to help them. Rob served his country in the military and now works at Northern Animal Clinic and Michele has been working hard at her job to earn numerous new certifications. Their son Robbie graduated from high school this year and didn't get a ceremony due to COVID-19 and now lost most of his possessions as well.  Watching their daughter Savarra tearfully go through her soaked baby book trying to salvage what she could was heartbreaking. The family has lost so much but continued to thank anyone that was willing to go and help them tear out saturated carpet and haul out beloved items that were now deemed waste for the landfill. The family has been frantically trying to restore their house, only to find out it has to be brought up to current codes, which will be virtually impossible for them. They are now facing the fact that they will most likely have to walk away from their beloved home. 
Rob's Northern Animal Clinic family is setting up this Go Fund me page - if you would like to directly help a family that has been victim to this flood, every little bit helps.
