The rain on August 14th flooded many areas and caused a lot of devastation to local friends and family. Our parent's, Frank and Mary Smalley had the flood waters wash out their bridge and driveway, which is the only way to get to their house. This is a big concern for their safety and it could take weeks or longer to fix. For now then they've been walking across the stream and debris, with cars on each side but that is also dangerous.
The cost to repair is considerable and not covered by insurance. We are exploring various options for fixing the bridge and driveway including grants and creative solutions. It is unlikely that FEMA money will be available since it's on private property.
We are raising money here to help offset some of the costs. The exact amount isn't known yet but it will be in the tens of thousands.
Please consider giving to help one of the most generous and humble couples around. Share the word and thank you in advance!
