HAPPY NEW YEAR ELLEN!

I COME TO YOU WITH A SITUATION THAT I HOPE YOU CAN HELP WITH, OR LET ME KNOW WHERE AND WHO I CAN GET THE HELP NEEDED.

MY YOUNGEST SISTER, ROBIN WARD, HAD A SECOND FIRE IN 18 MONTHS! THE MOST RECENT ONE WAS DECEMBER 26, AND SHE LOSS EVERYTHING, CHRISTMAS GIFTS, FURNITURE, HOME! SHE AND HER FAMILY CAME OUT OF THE HOUSE WITHOUT EVEN A PAIR OF SHOES! THIS IS A FAMILY OF: ROBIN, TONY(DISABLED HUSBAND) 4 KIDS, 1 DAUGHTER IN LAW, AND 3 GRANDCHILDREN, AGES, 3, 1, AND 2 MONTHS! THIS FAMILY GETS AN INCOME OF $700 A MONTH!

THE HOME WAS OUR "FAMILY HOME" SO SHE HAD NO RENT, BUT UTILITES, FOOD, ETC. THE COMMUNITY HAS BEEN WONDERFUL IN HELPING SOME, RED CROSS PAID FOR THEM A ROOM UNTIL WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 1ST, THEN, HAVE NO IDEA WHERE THEY'LL GO!

IT'S A HORRIBLE SITE TO SEE THE HOME! THE CHRISTMAS TREE IS STANDING, DECORATED, BUT THE GIFTS ARE GONE! THEY STRUGGLED TO GET THE KIDS ALL SOMETHING, AND IN A SNAP OF YOUR FINGERS...GONE! BUT, THE LORD GOT THEM OUT OF THE HOUSE SAFELY.

IT TOOK 3 FIRE DEPARTMENTS TO PUT THE FLAMES OUT! THIS IS A RURAL AREA, SO A WATER TRUCK HAD TO BE BROUGHT IN. THE HOME WAS OVER 100 YEARS OLD, SO IT WENT LIKE A TINDER BOX. ACCORDING TO THE FIRE DEPARTMENT, THE FIRE WAS CAUSED BY ELECTRICAL SHORTAGE, AND ELECTRIC WIRES WERE FOUND AGAINST INSULATION. THE FIRE APPARENTLY HAD BEEN SMOLDERING SEVERAL DAYS, SO, AGAIN, THEY WERE LUCKY TO SAFELY LEAVE THE HOME!

TONY HAS TO HAVE A VERY DANGEROUS OPERATION, IT'S SCHEDULED FOR NEXT WEEK, BUT WITH THIS, HE WON'T EVEN HAVE A PLACE TO RECOVER, IF THE SURGERY GOES SAFELY.

I HOPE YOU CAN POINT ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION OF WHO AND HOW I CAN FIND HELP FOR THIS POOR FAMILY! I MYSELF, AM A STRUGGLING WIDOW, BUT, I'VE DONE WHAT I CAN. MY OWN GRANDDAUGHTER GAVE THEM HER IPAD SHE GOT FOR CHRISTMAS, BECAUSE "NANA, THEY DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO PLAY WITH!" THIS FROM AN EIGHT YEAR OLD! SO, NOW I HAVE TO TRY TO SAVE TO GET HER ANOTHER IPAD, AND POSSIBLY A REWARD FOR HAVING SUCH A GIVING ATTITUDE! I CERTAINLY CAN'T PUNISH HER IN THIS CASE! :)

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO WEST VIRGINIA? IT'S A BEAUTIFUL STATE, BUT THERE'S LITTLE TO DO, EXCEPT TRY TO SURVIVE. WE WOULD WELCOME YOU, WHERE EVER WE CAN FIND TO HANG OUR HATS.

TONY HAS A BROTHER WHO'S A CONTRACTOR, WHO SAYS HE CAN BUILD THEM A HOME FOR $25,000, AND HAVE THEM IN IT WITHIN 60 DAYS, WEATHER PERMITTING. THE PROBLEM OF COURSE IS THE $25,000, AND WHERE TO LIVE UNTIL THEN. THEN OF COURSE, THERES THE ISSUE OF THINGS TO GO IN ANOTHER HOME, AND GET INSURANCE!!!!!!!!

DO YOU HAVE ANY SOLUTION TO THIS SITUATION, OR CAN REFER US TO WHERE WE CAN GET THIS MUCH NEEDED HELP?

YOU CAN REACH HER AT: ROBIN WARD 304-646-9774, OR ME: BRENDA HOLLIDAY 304-646-5911, OR EMAIL: brenda.j.holliday.h4vn@statefarm.com.

THANKS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
