Woman Launches Campaign To Help Childhood Friend

Holly Price is taking up the cause of a family desperately in need of a roof. The family living in the house does not have the financial means to move if they lose this house.

Holly Price is trying to help a family in desperate need. The roof on their house is collapsing. She reached out to Sparkt, worried that pretty soon the husband, her childhood friend, and his wife and their three children won't have anywhere to live.

Holly told Sparkt she's worried that the next big storm will cause the family's roof to cave in all together. It's already caused major structural issues in the house, and leaks have ruined a lot of the family's belongings.

Holly grew up with the father of this family and has known him most of her life, which is why she got involved. The family was already on an extremely tight budget and that got worse after the father had his work hours cut. That's left the family without the means to move to another house, or pay for repairs to this one, which was left to them by a relative.

Holly has been trying to assist her friends as much as she can, even setting up a GoFundMe page so anyone can donate to their cause. Several people reached out after seeing the GoFundMe page, including roofers and painters who are willing to volunteer their time to fix the house. The family's biggest need now is for materials to do the work, and the money to pay for those supplies.
