Volunteering at a church in Wichita Falls and feeding the homeless for over four and a half hours.
- Jennifer Helms coming home found out her street was block by fire trucks. The fireman asked is this your house. She looking out at the home saw her two dogs in the front yard with oxygen mask on them. They had suffered from smoke inhalation. And had to be treated at the vet which was a total cost o 348.00 plus continued care. Cougar, the cat cat did not make it. The fire fighter asked if she wanted to see the cat and do due her emotion, she could not take the site of it. Walking up to her dogs ,Tootsie had her head in and was unresponsive to Ms. Helms. The dog was wet and shaking with fear. Spade was able to get out first and went to the side of the house and then running across the street to neighbors. In tears speaking with me she was emotionally upset. Talking to me trying to explain everything she even mentioned how the refrigerator was burned up. The dogs where sent to the vet where they ended up staying for a week. Red cross helped out with a few nights at a hotel and friends have help with a place to stay.But as far as funding for items such as clothes and furniture dish ect... nothing has been received. This has very hard on Ms. Helms. Looking at her home and the destruction that it had left behind. Ms. Helms told me whats the point of going to church, you are going or being good or bad, the dang house is gone and everything, she owned, was in it. That was the state of mind she was in when she saw the devastation over run in her home. Losing everything has become an emotional battle to build back up again . Now this house that has burnt up has now been sold. And it seems this is a woman that has had very little help from others in life.Let's give her HOPE again by showing her that there is a community that cares. PLEASE DONATE.
