ALECares and Disaster Response
On a late Friday evening during winter, the Taylor Family suffered a devastating house fire. The family sadly lost everything in the fire. Thankfully Zach, Allison and their four boys (eight, seven, four and two years old) were placed in a hotel by the American Red Cross for a few nights. However, this was not going to be enough of a disaster response to support the family’s needs while they planned for more permanent housing. The Tuesday immediately following the fire, the family would have to vacate the hotel and seek out a shelter… Thoughtfully, their son’s first grade teacher notified ALECares of their situation. ALECares was able to secure the hotel for an additional two weeks, and also provided the family with the means to recover some of the contents that they had lost in the fire.
This video was filmed the Friday following the fire, where ALECares surprised the family in their hotel room with pillows, blankets, housewares, toys for the kids, and a Target gift card.
