Letter from Candy Smits,

 

As many of you know Hurricane Harvey and slammed into the Beaumont - Port Arther area just as bad if not worse than the Houston area. Our cousin Annette and her handicap Daughter Tara (she is in a wheel chair) were rescued around 1a.m. from high water two weeks ago Tuesday morning. They were taken to a church where they sat outside on a porch all night in wet clothes. They were taken in by Val’s sister and are currently staying there. They have finally started taking apart their home. They had approximately 3 feet of water in their one story house. Furniture was crumbling when they were moving things out and most everything is ruined including Tara’s battery operated wheelchair. The specialized van that they own may also need repairs even though it is currently drivable. They have lost everything. We would to help them get back on their feet to replace furniture, appliances and other needs. They are on a fixed income because Annette’s only job is to take care of Tara and they need a helping hand.

The only furniture left is a table and some chairs she is going to try to salvage. All appliances- dishwasher, refrigerator, stove freezer are gone. She said water is in all her cabinets she just didn't have time to look yesterday and clean that out.  I am sure there is more that she doesn't even realize yet.

She owns her home but has no insurance.

I have set up a donation page for her if you would like to help them. It is on my Facebook Page. The Link is also at the bottom of this page.

Any help or assistance will be much appreciated and a wonderful blessing to them.
