▼Apparently, people already know that the family stayed there for more than 3 months.

▼There’s a reason why people couldn’t get the family the help they needed.

▼People who have extra clothes that you want to donate or quilt, hopefully, can be given to them.

▼But, most people thanked the Facebook user for sharing the story as she helped the local to be more aware of the situation.
