Fire Expenses

My sister, Melanie Kinsey, experienced a kitchen fire on the evening of Friday September 28th.  Luckily, the damage was restricted to the kitchen area and no one was injured.  Due to the damage the apartment sustained, she is unable to live in her apartment until the kitchen is partially rebuilt and the unit cleaned.  Unfortunately, Melanie is required to pay the insurance deductible prior to the start of the repairs.  Melanie is a loving mother of 2 kids, Meghan who is 11 years old and Addison who has just turned 9.  She is a single mom who works very hard as a medical assistant and often has difficulty making ends meet.  This unforeseen incident has pushed her purse strings to the limit.  Without help, she may have to find a different place to live and raise her children.  Help in any form, even prayer, is most graciously accepted.  Thank you for taking the time to read about Melanie's story and help if you are able.
