Rosie's Hurricane Disaster Help

Rosalia, as many of you know is like a second mother to me.  My Mom's best friend, originally from Puerto Rico, moved to New York as a child and considers herself a New Yorker.  Due to NYC's harsh winters of late, Rosie decided it was time to pick up stakes and move to Florida for warmer weather and proximity to family.  Unfortunately, Rosie suffered a terrible and total loss due to Hurricane Irma.  Despite being in central Florida and not near either coastline, Rosie's home and the home of her daughter and son in law were completely destroyed.  A last minute forced evacuation meant that Rosie left her two bedroom home and all of her possessions with just the clothes on her 88 year old back.  Living in a hotel currently, Rosie, her daughter, and son in law have to start all over again.  Their homes are a total loss.  All possessions, photos. mementos and keepsakes collected over 8 decades are gone.  Try to image that. So we are joining together to help Rosie and her family get back on their feet as quickly as possible.  Funds are needed right now.  They will be used to replace furniture, kitchen wares, clothes etc...but, of course, can not replace the irreplaceable. 
Thank you for whatever you can contribute. We will be collecting the funds and depositing them into Rosie's account by the end of the month so there is still time to give.
Thank you,
Samantha
