I am kindly asking you guys to help a family, that has lost everything they owned. Shane and Fran Lothman, who are like a second family to me, just moved to Wharton, TX. If you have been watching the news or have any kind of social media, I'm sure you have seen the devastation that has affected this quaint, small South Texas town. Shane moved to Wharton after taking a position as a new football coach at Boling High School, accompanied by his loving wife, Fran. Being new to the area, they were unaware of the fact that they were surrounded by a few major rivers. Two nights ago, they experienced the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Around 11pm, they were evacuating their new home. Along with their two dogs, and a handful of belongings, they fled. The water, from overflowing rivers, had risen several feet in a matter of minutes. Their life was in danger & they were unable to grab anything else out of their home. They woke up the next morning with their home completely flooded. Shane and Fran have lost everything they own. They have been left with absolutely nothing. Having no flood insurance, they have lost their livelihood. They have been left with no clothing, no food, no place to sleep, no place to live. In the middle of this small, suburban town, they were trapped. All roads have been flooded, leaving them with no way out. My heart breaks for this sweet family. Many of you personally know the Lothman's and know that Coach Lothman & Fran deserve all of the help/donations/and prayers that they can get! Any donation would be greatly appreciated to help them get back on their feet.
