Flooding In Basement

After a heavy rain on Friday 11 Nov we had 3-1/2 feet of water in our basement. At the present time the repair bill for hauling away the debris, cleaning and sanitizing the basement, replacing the furnace and hot water heater will be $15,500.
Our insurance policy has the standard water exclusion clause so we will not get any funds from the insurance company.
Any contributions toward these expenses would be great appreciated. An anonymous donor will match the first $1,000.
Donations may be mailed to Tuscarawas County Genealogical Society, P.O. Box 83, Dennison, Ohio 44621-0083.
We will be applying for grants to try to also try to cover the cost but competition for grants has increased in recent years.
