Tyler Street Fire Victims

On Saturday, February 10, 2018, a young woman broke into the basement of my family's home ( Zheni Verdugo, Marco Duran, and Justin Duran) .  Using a pallet of wood, a tire, and a canister of gasoline, she created an explosion and fire directly underneath the bedrooms of my parents and brother.  As a result of this fire, my family has lost everything from my parent's bedroom and brother's closet. This is currently an active crime scene, and we are unable to enter the home.  Our immediate needs are money for clothing, sweaters, jackets, and shoes.  We will need funds to replace the items in the bedroom, such as the beds, bedding, dressers, etc.  We will better know the extent of the damage once we are allowed back in the home. My parents are hardworking, loving, and caring people whom do not hesitate to help those in need as much as they can. Unfortunately this time they need the help due to this horrible incident. I ask from the bottom of my heart for help for my parents so they can start all over again and help my little brother with some of his necessities as well. This has been a very traumatizing situation for all involved. My little brother is especially affected as he left the house for a school trip to Boston in the morning to play viola with Kids 4 Harmony, and when he returned home he found out he no longer has a "HOME".    Our estimated need is $5,000.  Any help will be appreciated.  Thank you so much for your support. ** I would like to thank everyone for all the support & I wanted to inform you that I, Jessica Santander, daughter of Jenny & Marcos, will be responsible for the withdrawal and delivery of funds to my mom & step-dad.** Blessings to all!!♡
