Donations Pour In To Help Theodore Family

Posted: Updated:
THEODORE, Alabama -

In an evelope that reads "We will continue to pray for you and your family", an anonymous couple encloses $500 cash for a family need.

"Anything would be appreciated at this point because we have nothing we're having to start over again," said Apryl Severns.

Apryl and her two sons were left homeless Saturday morning when fire quickly took over their home.
 
"I mean what you see, this is it, we have nothing. I don't even have the key to my car. I have a car, but I have no key. I have no ID, I have nothing," she says

Within hours of our story airing the donations started pouring in. Boxes of pots and pans, household items and clothing are what this family needs most.
 
"Honestly I can't believe it. It's just amazing. I am so thankful. Yesterday we started with nothing but our lives, and thank God we have them. Now we'll have clothes and the kids will have Christmas. It's amazing," she explains.

The donations are coming from individuals, families and even businesses.
 
"We're going to cook dinner for them at Cock of the Walk in Pensacola and while it's still fresh and hot we're going to deliver it to them and hopefully help them turn lemons into lemonade during this season," said Mike Rickels, who will be cooking the family dinner on Christmas Eve.

On Monday a donation drop-off location will be setup at Baker High School from 7:30 a.m. until 3 p.m.
 
Monetary donations for the family can be made at Regions Bank.
