There is a family that lost everything they owned in a house fire. We are taking up donations for them if anyone has anything they don't need or want this family would appreciate anything they can get. They don't have any insurance and are an elderly disable couple raising their 2 grandchildren. They only have a fixed income from their disability. Thank you all so very much!!!

Not sure about the accout at the bank. But the granddaughter goes to Chuckey Doak Middle. We're not asking for money just trying to get them
Things they need to start over. Such as clothing, household stuff,appliances,furniture, dishes and etc.

Very saddd...i've known billy and shelia for a long time there GREAT people and didnt deserve what happen. I've since been up there and there doing ok i mean there in a camper with no space and poor old mamaw can barely get in and out the shower due to her condition's its sad I hope everyone helps them much as possiable because if it was somebody needing help bill hensley would do whatever he could to help. Trust me he pulled my car off a tree when i wrecked up near his house he has helped me alot he is the most kind hearted person in the world. There's a big container in his drive-way anything you wanna take pretty sure you can just throw in there i was up there last friday and it was already full just none of that can replace the things they lost that had sentimental value.

Both kids go to chuckey doak middle, you could get in touch with them through the school. Or look up Velma and Mike Gregg. They really need things for a new home, blankets pillows plates pots pans and ect. Billy and Sheila are the greatest people. And appreciate everything they get. Thank you very much!

for those that are wanting to donate, I am a friend of theirs and i know a lot of people keep asking where and how to donate, if you would like i can meet you somewhere in town and will be glad to pick it up and take it to them. Bill and Sheila are wonderful people. Bill would give you the shirt off his back or his last dollar, whichever it was you needed. through all of this he's managed to keep a smile on his face and to keep everything going as normal as he can for his wife.
