The Markham's Fire Relief Fund

Please help! Urgent assistance needed for Markham family after house fire.

On 9/7/2017 (yesterday) my sister, Jennifer Markham's family home caught on fire.  Derek was at work and Rebecca was at school and my sister was napping with her son when she woke up to her bedroom completely engulfed in flames, not more than a foot away from her and Joshua's head.  The fire destroyed nearly everything they owned including all of their clothes, furniture, all of Joshua and Rebecca's toys, save for the few outside toys stored in the basement.  Unfortunately they didn't have renter's insurance and have the bear the brunt of the cost to replace practially their entire world.  Derek and Jennifer also had another daughter, Allison, who we sadly lost about two years ago in a car accident, and unfortunately nearly all of their keepsake items and the things they kept of hers were destroyed as well.  I'm asking for donations so that they can start to rebuild after this tragedy.  Any donations of furniture and clothes (which can be coordinated off this site) would be greatly appreciated.  Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you and God Bless.
