A small family home was destroyed yesterday near the South Marina near DFC. The family has lost literally every single item except those on their backs. Have a 3 year old daughter too. Thankfully, no one was hurt as the family had gone out for tacos and returned to devastation yesterday mid-day.

Beth Hart is doing a collection. They need everything from household goods, toiletries, clothing (small or xsm for woman, size 7 shoes), girls size 4.5 and mens pant size 32.

Call La Perla and ask for Beth to sort out donations if you have anything you'd like to give to help them get back on their feet.

The mother, Vanessa, insisted on going to work today. Tells you what sort of person she is. so sad.

HI - I'll start going through our stuff to see what we can find.
Am wondering if Beth might be so kind as to update us on things as they come in so we can focus on what they need most?

Hi Diane,

I will post an update tomorrow.

We are all set on sheets, towels, and pillows, at this time.

Thanks very much!

The family has temporary housing right now. A longer term solution will need to be found. When I know more, I'll post.

Thanks!

UPDATE!

Thanks to some very generous contributions, Vanessa and her family now have:

Sheets, towels, pillows
Men's clothing
Toiletries
Underwear
Women's shoes/slippers

Several people are working on little girls clothing (size 4/5).

We have some kitchen supplies, but can use more (i.e. plates & cookware). A microwave oven would be greatly appreciated as the family's temporary housing does not have kitchen facilities.

Please call me (Beth) at 635-0686 or Amanda at 226-5888 if you can help.

Thank you!

Hi Diane,

Yes, ladies clothing and furniture are both needed. Vanessa is a tiny lady (size 1/2). They have no furniture at all.

Thank you!

Beth
