Boynton Beach Fire
Kevin, Melissa, and their four kids, lived in a townhouse in Boynton Beach, Florida.
The family learned that the owner sold the townhouse they had been renting. Fortunately, they were able to locate an apartment quickly and were looking forward to moving into their new place.
The day before their move, the family came home and found their townhouse in flames.
Due to the fire, they lost everything; furnishings, clothing, electronics and personal belongings that are irreplaceable. To make matters worse, they did not have renters insurance.
They spent days combing through what they could salvage.
With their community’s love and support, they were able to obtain donations and managed to provide the family some sense of normalcy. However, this was just a start in helping to make up for the family’s major loss.
ALECares was soon contacted by a friend of the family requesting for a humble donation. ALECares is a nonprofit arm of ALE Solutions, giving back worldwide by providing disaster relief to families in need.
ALECares was more than happy to assist and worked with ALE Solutions’ furniture vendor to deliver brand new beds and housewares for the family in their new apartment. ALECares also placed the family in a hotel for a few nights in anticipation of starting a new beginning in Boynton Beach.
A portion of every temporary housing placement ALE Solutions fulfills goes toward ALECares, allowing us to give back with every event.
