There is a family in desperate need. The daughter of my friend, Mary, at Daisy Bouquet lost everything in a fire. Mary has posted about it. The family lost everything, including the oldest daughter's eyeglasses. It's a blessing that everyone got out of the house unscathed. Their guardian angels were working overtime.
The family left the house in their pajamas and barefeet...no coats. All of their clothing and everything else was lost. They are thanking God that no one was injured. They have been put up in a hotel by ARC for three days but after that, their lives are up in the air. They had no tenant insurance on the contents of their home.
Here is how we can help. We can send clothes, linens, household goods or anything else that a family who is starting out could use. Books and toys for the children can also be sent.
I asked Mary's permission to post this and she graciously gave it. Here is what she had to say on her last blog post.
EVERYTHING as everything was lost. The childrens sizes are Boys size 8 pants shirts 10-12 and girls size 7-8 pants and 10-12 shirts and little boys size 6. my daughter wears large pants and xlarge shirts. There was insurance for the owners but no renters insurance for our Daughter. Thanks so much
Since postage is expensive, I suggest sending gift cards to places like Walmart or Target so the family can buy the things they need. Please also send cards and notes wishing the family well. Food gift cards would also be a big help.
Anything you can do for this family will be greatly appreciated. Please remember them in their prayers, as the mother has many decisions to make in the upcoming days.
Please send notes, cards and gift cards to:
PO Box 541 Guthrie, Ky.
Please drop over to Mary's blog and leave well wishes. Just a few minutes of our time can make a HUGE difference in this family's life.
Thank you in advance for helping this family get back on its feet and for praying for them. I will post more photos of our trip tomorrow.
Another note from Mary.
Mary thank-you so much. The shoes sizes are boy 3 and 11 This ia a childs 11 and girls size 2 if this helps with the socks.
