Last week, mid November 2021, portions of Whatcom County, Washington suffered a devastating flood. It was the worst they’ve seen in 31 years and many people lost their homes, vehicles, businesses and belongings. Many of these homes were NOT in flood zones so no flood insurance. Those in flood zones were hit incredibly hard and although homes are insured in most cases belongings, appliances, furniture, etc are not.
I was born and raised in Whatcom County and continued to live there up until a few months ago so it is near and dear to my heart. It’s an amazing community and I have close friends and family members greatly impacted by this. Many have to find somewhere to live for the foreseeable future while still paying mortgages, insurance deductibles, and replacing belongings that were ruined.
I wanted to help in some way and many of you have reached out asking how you can help too so I am sharing GoFundMe pages for a few families that can really use our help. Every dollar counts; I know they will be so appreciative! Prayers would mean so much to the community as well!❤️❤️❤️
