Single mom and 4 kids homeless after fire

My name is Patricia McAuley Tirone.  My sister (Peggy Ludwig), her 2 sons, and 2 granddaughters lost their home (in Lancaster, NY) last night in a devastating fire.
The house is a total loss. 
Peggy Ludwig has a severely disabled son who is on the autism spectrum. He needs sensory calming tactics.  All of his equipment for such was lost. 
2 days before Christmas and everything is gone. 
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
Money donated will be used to rebuild their home, and replace all that was lost in the fire. Rebuilding the hiuse is giving Peggy the opportunity to make her home as accommodating for her son's disability. 
All funds donated will be going to an account in which only Peggy will have access to. 100% of the funds recieved from this campaign will go directly to Peggy and the kids. 
We are humbled by the enormous generosity from our friends,  neighbors,  and community. 
From the bottom of our hearts we send our thanks.
