Tom McLocklin Fire Recovery

The cover photo was taken by a barrow county firefighter on the scene. You can see they also made a post about it on Facebook. The fire started from an electrical issue which my uncle did not know about until it was too late. He is still alive, but suffers from many serious burns all over his body. He is in a burn treatment center now, but once he gets out, he will have nothing. Both of his cars were too close to the house, and caught fire as well. His pets are fine too. None of his belongings survived the fire. He had his uniforms and equipment from his time spent in the Army, the medical equipment he got from the VA, and the childhood bedrooms of his son and daughter. My uncle lived in that house for a long time. Now, literally everything in there is gone.

He needs this money so he can get back on his feet again when he is ready. We want him to be able to get another house of his own, and hopefully a good car too. My uncle is very independent. He lived alone in that house for about 20 years.

I don't know how much he may need. Our goal is subject to change for better or worse. We have a short time to raise as much as we can. I am unsure as to how long he will be in the hospital, but I do hope he gets out safe and sound. Any help is appreciated.
