This is more than a job for me. You’re all my family.”
I decided to reach out to the Fund shortly after Hurricane Florence, because our home was a part of the flooding. I knew from neighbors that the toll of a flood in the area was not going to be short term, and they were right. My family was misplaced for 2 weeks between both storm and flooding. The water is currently going down. We’ve been able to assess the damages, the clean–up that will ensue, and the horrid smell of lingering flood waters, but luckily, we still have a home to go to. Being misplaced didn’t stop us from working and it allowed me to just be someone positive for other people to share their stories with. My family wants to say thank you to our staples family for being there for us!
