It is just heartbreaking to see how hard this is on them… financial help from Fema and insurance only comes after a seemingly endless amount of forms to fill out and it doesn’t look like it will be much. It seems to be a full-time job in itself, reading the Fema guidelines, getting the required quotes, cataloging the contents of their home for insurance on top of all cleanup on the property and in the structures/house, This is nothing anyone should have to go through in their seventies. If there is any assistance from Fema for seniors to walk them through it all and help get the big machines there to clear the debris, they haven’t been able to find it. This is why I want to help them with a Cause Day. Help is needed.”
