Friend Had A House Fire

Post by mekender » Wed Sep 21, 2016 4:32 pm

A dear friend in the Orlando area just had a house fire this morning... Household had 3 adults and 3 kids living in it. Everyone made it out ok but the house is covered in a good bit of water and there is soot everywhere that there is no damage.

Initial ask is for any extra clothing that any of you may have in the following sizes:

Women's size 16 pants and XL tops
Girls/Teen Juniors Size 0 or 1 and/or XS
Girls kids size 10
Boys 10-12 or large

Insurance and the Red Cross are involved but that may take time. Anyone local to me we can work it to where I can deliver. Anyone local to Central Florida, I will work out a way to get stuff local there.

I appreciate the offer, they are in flux right now staying at friend's houses... I would think that if anything the best route would be to either send stuff to me or to my dad who lives near there.

Looks like it was an electrical fire behind their stove, the fire damage was mostly in the kitchen but the smoke and water damage is all over the house. FD also had to punch holes in the walls and ceilings throughout the house to get to hot spots.

Due to drama in her family, she has requested that the go fund me be taken down... I am doing so now...

If anyone still wants to help, I will ask that money be sent via PayPal and I will then go out to get the items her and her children need. That can be done via my paypal account which is my screen name @ gmail.com

Had a big tub full of girls and ladies clothes get to them today. That helps a ton... Still need Boy's clothes size 12 if anyone has some laying around. Any bit of cash would be a great help too!
