    Hey guys, found out my sisters place had a fire and they're scrambling. They're not well off and having some right trouble. I'm looking for anyone that can donate a sheet of plywood or some 2x4's, 2x6's, fasteners, sand blasting, labor etc... to the cause and help em get the place sealed up before the rains come.

    I've already sent every bit of money I could raise for them to buy lumber and supplies with but they could use more. They need a few hundred bucks worth of supplies to get into a position that's durable enough that they'll be able to recover. There's my sister, my mom, their spouses and 2 kids in the house.

    If you have few sheets of plywood laying around or other construction materials you could donate or in any even get delivered there (Homeland a couple miles from downtown Perris) I'd be grateful. Anyone with more than just a little supplies, I'd be happy to try and work out a deal with you to pay for those materials or we can do some horse tradin'.

    I don't konw what else they need but I imagine even things like appliances, paint, drywall and joint compound are going to be useful.

    Anyone that can help, please contact me and I'll work out details with you. Those that can I will at least be indebted to and if we can work out a way to even the score I'm happy to do that.

    Sorry to hear about your family. I hope they get the help they need and back to normal as fast is possible. Since there was no mention, I assume everyone is ok?

    yeah, they're all fine. most of their stuff is toast but all things considered things could have been worse.
