My father-in-law, Denver Thompson, just suffered a devastating apartment fire on Thursday 2/27/2020. He has lost everything he owns, including his six cats.
Thank you to Lacee and her family for the box of clothes and things!
Also thank you to Pamela! Your donation helped Dad pay for his diabetic testing kit, a paper towel rack, a silverware bin, some groceries and laundry soap!
My father-in-law and his two roommates suffered a devastating apartment fire. It started in their apartment and spread to the other eight apartments in his building. 30 people are displaced, one of his roommates is in the hospital and will be needing skin grafts and the other has been released already. They lost literally everything they own, including their six cats.

If you have the means to help, we would be forever grateful. My husband and I are in the process of buying a home so are funds are extremely limited. We are helping him get stable and replace small things like his phone right now while we wait to figure out his living situation.
The two major expenses we face right now are getting his bifocals and dentures replaced. The rest will be furniture and things once the living situation is figured out.
Any and all help is appreciated.
Last thing for today...
Thank you Mike for the donation of the dining table and chairs for Dad's new apartment!
The amount of donation, kindness and help we've received to help get this man back on his feet has been incredible. I can't thank you all enough for your help. He still has some little things to get but all the big stuff is now taken care of!
Here's what your donations helped us get for Dad today!
Thank you Ali and Jeff for the donation of the coffee table!
Thank you Laura for the funds to purchase the two chairs!
Thank you Chierey for the funds to purchase the standing lamp!
Thank you Mike for the funds to purchase the love seat!
Thank you Meggles for the funds to purchase the side table!
We got Dad the keys to his apartment today! My work donated an old TV too him but we haven't been able to get it to work yet so may still need to purchase one of those. Hubs and I chipped in and bought him a brand new bed to be delivered on Monday.
Next up, we go to the thrift stores to try and find him some more furniture like living room chairs, coffee table and a dresser - and of course all the little things like pots, pans, plates, silverware, etc.
As we buy him things, I will take pictures of the items and thank individuals with pictures of what your donations have bought him! Thank you for all your help and support thus far. Please keep sharing. We have a long way to go to get him back on his feet! <3
We've managed to get Dad a new phone, got him two new pairs of glasses ordered and we gave him our old laptop too.
He is officially getting a one bedroom apartment of his own that we now need to furnish! Biggest items he will need are bed, dresser, TV, and couch. Of course all the little things to like pots and pans and plates and silverware, etc. He'll be getting the apartment sometime in the next few days and we will start furnishing it from there.
Thank you so much for your support so far! Please keep sharing!
