Family Needs Your Help!

A Family Burned Out of Their Home.

Dear Oakman Parents,

A family lost their home this morning to a fire. They are in need of gently used furniture, clothing, dishes, everything!  They have one night free in a hotel and tomorrow they have no place to stay. The family had no home insurance.

They are looking for an apartment to rent and can pay up to $700 per month. Please put the word out and let’s help this family. If you don’t have furniture, consider making a donation so we can buy them supplies such as toothbrushes, soap, etc….

Call Mrs. Dakroub at 313 827-6511 to help.
