Fire Destroyed My Home

With a heavy heart and a GRATEFUL spirit I am announcing for those who may not know, my family has experience the loss of our home by fire for the SECOND time in seven years. I cannot express how grateful and blessed I am to still stand strong with each and everyone of them. We are heart broken and don’t know what to do, how to feel or even what to think. The fire destroyed everything and most importantly took all 9 of us out of our home; not to mention our dog Willow. 

Once again we have to rebuild our lives from scratch. My family and I find ourselves in the uncomfortable position of asking for help. Our home has always been open to all and often sheltered those in need. Now we are in need of the help. Asking for help is not always easy. In fact, it can be downright terrifying when you've been the one usually providing the help. It's extremely humbling. 

But this time we are stuck and are relying on the love and support from the people in our community. Any form of donation would help us out tremendously. It may sound cliche' but no amount is too small. This money will be used to find us another place to live, clothing, shoes, school supplies, toiletries and etc.

We have nothing but each other right now and would be forever grateful for all the help we can get. 

With appreciation,
The Seater Family
