I thought her male companion stated they left because he was burned?

How did he get burned?

The one video clip I saw said that the Red Cross was spending $4000.00 to help these families. If that was correct, how can the families start over with $100.00 per person. The families need to find someplace to stay, buy food, clothes, medicines, and items for the children. How can you do that with just $100.00???

That may be the cash out lay, but other services are provided by them and other organizations.

If you want to help, please contact the Red Cross in Petersburg. We have been put in touch with a family that mirrors our own, and have been able to round up donations to help give them a new start. Its amazing what you can find that you don't use/need/want anymore that they can.
These folks lost EVERYTHING they had.
