Why is there a "new" donation site for Ms. Phillips?
May 08, 2016

I figured everyone was wondering why is there a NEW donation site for Ms. Phillips.  The old site that was setup was shutdown.  We thought See More


In November 2015, Ms. Gertrude Phillips, who is 88 years old, home was flooded with approximately 6 inches of raw sewage. She lives in the city of La Vergne, TN. The Board of Alderman and Mayor originally voted to pay Ms. Phillips for damages in Feb 2016. Due to the politics -- the board had to retracted their decision to pay Ms. Phillips. There have been several fundraisers to obtain the money needed to repair her home. Ms. Phillips is a wonderful lady and numerous citizens have stepped up donated money, supplies and lots of hard labor. Most of the flooring has been repaired or replaced. The Hot Water Heater, that was damaged during this incident, has been replaced. Now Ms. Phillips needs to get her HVAC system, a 3 ton unit, replaced. All duct work had to be removed due to contamination. This is the largest outstanding item that is needed. The temperature is rising and we are very concerned about Ms. Phillips well being. We need to get the duct work and HVAC installed. After that there is still a little flooring that needs to be purchased. Also, drywall work and then paint is needed as well. We can see the END in SIGHT!! However, the HVAC system is not cheap. If you can find it in your heart to help Ms. Phillps, please donate. Every little bit helps.
