I am a single mother with two children. One is in college at Stony Brook and the other attends Middle School. I have budgeted my funds from the insurance company the best that I could but I was unable to complete my kitchen. It may not have been the best idea but I wanted my children to have a bathroom and their rooms back to get their own personal space from the emotional rollercoaster they have been on since the divorce to hurricane Irene and now the worst Hurricane Sandy. I don't have enough money for rebuilding a kitchen the lowest estimate was 11,500 this includes appliances. When we return back to our home we will be using a microwave and bbq with a slop sink. All items donated from Adopt A House Donors. Thank you but I do need to get cabinets and appliances. I applied for assistance with small groups but havent received anything yet in reference to appliance donation. Please help me and my kids fundriase for our Kitchen so we can get back to living like human beings. I enclosed a picture of how my kitchen looked after the storm and we emptied all bottom cabinets. I will add our new picture of the current empty walls of our kitchen as soon as I can. Thank you so much for taking the time out to read my story.
