Metzger Family Home Rebuild After Flood
Organized by: Terrie Metzger
My brother's family's home was flooded over New Years with the record flooding in the Arnold (Missouri) area. Their entire main floor received about 6" of water. Because of all of the contaminants in the water, everything on the ground had to be trashed (most of their furniture, appliances, electronics, shoes/personal belongings, etc.). They have torn out all the flooring and most of the drywall and insulation. They have had to basically gut their house and will have to build a new one on the inside. Even though their house has never flooded before, they had a SMALL amount of flood insurance, but it's not going to be nearly enough for all that is needed so I have set up this fundraising campaign to try to help them out. They found out 1/26 they will be getting NO $ HELP from FEMA. They have had a lot of physical help inside the house (they have great friends!!) but they will soon be getting to the point where they are going to need to start buying supplies and start re-building. If you can give any amount, it would be helpful. I wouldn't ask if it wasn't a true emergency, but it is. No one could have ever expected this to happen, and I wish I never had to see my brother and his family in this situation. Thank you in advance for your consideration and support.
