My name is Corrie and I'm putting this campaign together to help my friend Lauren Norinder and her family. Lauren and I have been friends since we met in Brownies when we were just six years old. It's still hard for me to believe Lauren's eldest son is fast approaching the age we were when we had first met!
Lauren, her husband Jonas and her two sons live in Babylon on the south shore of Long Island. As you may have heard, Long Island's south shore took a devastating hit by Hurricane Sandy. Luckily they had evacuated prior to the storm and were safe, but when they returned they found their home in a state of disrepair. Over three feet of water flooded the entire house, front to back.
Following the storm, after assessing the damage the cost of the repairs is overwhelming. My goal in creating this campaign is to help them raise some funds to lighten the load and relieve a lot of the stress they are currently under.
What We Need & What You Get
The Norinders are in need of financial assistance to make the repairs to rebuild their home. They've been denied FEMA funding due to them having flood insurance, but the insurance to date won't make a dent in the tens of thousands of dollars they need to fix their house.
Our inital goal is to raise $10,000 to help them make the immediate repairs they need. This goal may change depending on what their final estimates come in, and we'll update the campaign accordingly.
By donating to help the Norinders, you get the satisfaction of knowing exactly which family receives your Hurricane Sandy Relief donations and how they are being used.
We'll continue to keep this campaign page updated as to the home repair progress, as well as keep all the donors up to date as well. Your contribution will make a huge impact in their lives, especially for their boys!
