Support Nora's Dad

On Jan 9th at 05h45am I get a call from my Aunt telling me that my Dad's house caught fire at midnight and that he barely made it out alive.  He had been watching a movie in his room and fell asleep like any other night except this night woke up to the fire alarm going off. He opened his room door to find the house engufled in flames. He tried to get out but there was too much smoke. He then went back to his room and moved his bed under his bedroom window and lowered himself to the ground. He had his pj pants on and had his cell in his pocket, that's it. He lost everything, my family home is gone.
The claims person confirmed there was nothing left to investigate to determine the cause so my Dad is waiting and hoping the insurance goes through. In the meantime, he is living with my cousin in town. Once the insurance goes through he can get himself a place to rent in town. My dad is a proud man, and I honestly didn't think he would want any help but after I asked him about money and if he was ok, he confirmed he would accept some help. He does not want me to put it on social media but has agreed I could send it to my work family.
He has started buying clothes and the every day essentials... as we all know these add up quickly.
If there is anything you can do to contribute it would be greatly appreciated.
I was extremely upset when it happened and my heart broke for my dad but with time the pain continues to get easier. It would make me so proud and happy to help my Dad out. If you can help, please do and thank you from the bottom of my heart.
