The Torres' House Fire Relief Fund

ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28TH, AT APPROXIMATELY 3:20 P.M., THE APARTMENT THAT HOUSED 2 OF OUR SCHOLARS AND THEIR FAMILY, CAUGHT FIRE AND 90 PERCENT OF EVERYTHING THAT WAS INSIDE, WAS DESTROYED.  IN A MATTER OF MINUTES, CLOTHES, ELECTRONICS, PICTURES, FOOD, AND MOST OF ALL, THEIR SAFE PLACE WENT UP IN SMOKE AND WAS SEVERLY DAMAGED BY WATER.  THEIR HOUSE WAS DEEMED UNINHABITABLE AND THEY HAD TO BE MOVED TO A TEMPORARY RESIDENCE.  WE ARE USING THIS PLATFORM TO RAISE FUNDS FOR THEM TO TRY TO REPLACE SOME OF THEIR BARE ESSENTIALS AND TO ALLEVIATE SOME OF THE STRESS THAT COMES ALONG WITH LOSING YOUR HOME AND THE TRAUMA THAT ENSUES LONG AFTER THE FIRE IS PUT OUT.  FOR AS LITTLE AS $5.00, YOU CAN ASSIST THEM WITH GETTING BACK ON THEIR FEET AND BEGINNING TO REGAIN SOME TYPE OF NORMALCY IN THEIR LIVES.  WE APPRECIATE YOUR CONTRIBUTION IN ADVANCE AND EVEN IF YOU CANNOT DONATE, YOUR PRAYERS ARE JUST AS VALUABLE.  

THANK YOU, 

GREAT OAKS CHARTER SCHOOL
