Help Needed for Johnson Families
Within the last two weeks we have had two Johnson families have total home loss fires. In short, these two families have lost everything.
For both families, house related needs include:
For Rodney Mack's family--
The Mack family has created a Go Fund Me account for monetary donations at https://www.gofundme.com/yaktx-fire-destroys-family-home
Mom & Dad have purchased items for their students but still need the following
Dad sizes – 3-4X shirts, 48 waist 36 length jeans or sweats, size 12.5-13 tennis shoes and socks
Mom sizes – 10/12 size jeans, size large in yoga or sweat pants, L-XL shirts, 8.5 tennis shoes and socks
For Anonymous family,
The second family has asked to remain anonymous. Monetary donations for this family can be delivered to the Johnson Main Office/Ms. Shawn or Ms. Conyers.
2 year old – 3T boy
Infant – 0-3 month boy clothing
Mom 9/10 women’s clothing, needing size 8 ladies shoes
Dad 32x30 pants, size 8 men’s shoes
We have limited storage space for donations but can house items in the basement until families can pick up. Both families indicate they have storage ability for furniture etc. so if you have a larger donation, I can assist with your connection with the families.
*Johnson will be collecting contributions through 1/26/18 (2 weeks).
