Sandy Smith's Driveway Restoration

Many people were affected by the flooding in Michigan in June of 2017. One of the people affected by the flooding was Sandy Smith. Because of the flooding and a drain installed by Midland county, a sinkhole has opened up in her driveway. The sinkhole has grown to a massive 15 feet x 18 feet, and it is 8 feet deep. 
          Sandy is a wonderful woman, who is very involved with her church, Meridan Church of God. But the sinkhole has made it difficult to get in and out of her home, and she fears the sink hole will only continue to grow.
          Sandy has contacted the Midland County Drain commissioner, 211, FEMA, but has found no relief. Because of the location of the sinkhole all agencies Sandy has contacted are unwilling to help stating that it's the homeowners responsiblility to repair damages. Sandy has also spoke with WNEMTV5, here is the link to that story: http://www.wnem.com/story/35972608/sanford-woman-trapped-by-massive-sinkhole-in-driveway

          If you are unable to make monetary donations, the church will be holding a spaghetti dinner in September. There will also be a silent auction and a bake sale during the spaghetti dinner. If you would like to donate items or services for the silent auction, or baked goods for the bake sale please contact Merdian Church of God at (989) 687-2773 or you can email Pastor Kevin Tippinhttp://www.wnem.com/story/35972608/sanford-woman-trapped-by-massive-sinkhole-in-driveway at pastorkevin@tds.net or the church secretary at meridianchurch@tds.net. The office hours are Monday - Friday 9 am - 1pm. 
          God Bless.
