While I am VERY blessed to say that while I did not suffer irreparable devastation, my family wasn't so fortunate.
Their home of 42 years was submerged in 5 feet of water. EVERYTHING is now on the curb, preparing to be discarded. Precious photos, furniture, you name it. Add to it two completely totaled vehicles.
We have already put in hours gutting the house, searching for any salvageable items, and cutting drywall.
Now reality has set in: we have to rebuild, and insurance will only go so far.
I need your help.
The $5,000 goal will go toward offsetting the spiraling costs of replacing furniture, storage expenses, and replacement of lost items.
Here is a rough breakdown:
APARTMENT DOWNPAYMENT: $950
MOVING EXPENSES: $700
REPLACE FOOD/PANTRY: $500
MISC ESSENTIALS: $500
That's just the BEGINNING...
1. The entire house must be treated for mold.
2. The A/C unit and ducts must be replaced.
3. The cabinets must be torn out and replaced.
4. 100% of the appliances must be replaced.
5. The tile must be torn out and replaced.
The restoration process may take up to nine (9) months due to shortages of materials and labor.
Your donation of any amount will be a blessing.
