Hurricane Florence Relief Loan Request
« on: September 21, 2018, 01:21:11 PM »
Hello,

My name is Tim Lewis, aka Smokey. I am the webmaster of blackpowdersmoke.com. We have been hit by disaster and I am asking for help in the form of loans to be repaid with interest.

My family and I are in Lumberton, NC, where our community has been devastated by Hurricane Florence. We have lost our food and many of our clothes are ruined from water from the leaking roof and collapsed ceiling in our bedroom. We are without insurance and are considering asking from  relief from FEMA.

We have gotten some help which helped with food and supplies, but our cash reserves are low.

My wife and I are employees of the Public Schools of Robeson County. We had just returned to work on August 28 and it looks like we are going to be out of work for at least 4 weeks.

I am not asking for handouts. I am asking for loans which I will repay by February of next year plus interest.

I know I am asking a lot: for your trust though we may not know each other well or not at all. Please help us get through this catastrophe.

If you are willing to help us with a short term loan,
you can use my personal PayPal to send money. I will receive 95% of what is sent. I will repay 100%, plus interest…

My PayPal email is carolina_landstar@yahoo.com

Here is my mailing address…

Tim Lewis
PO Box 3832
Lumberton, NC 28359

Thank you for listening,
Tim Lewis

Quite a few people have helped us since Hurricane Florence devastated our community last month.

 I have made every possible effort to reach each one of you to acknowledge and thank you. Since I could not match up all of the email addresses with forum profiles, there are a few that I could only reach by email. Not everyone frequents their email addresses, so I am still striving to insure that I have reached everyone.

If you have responded to my distress call and you have not heard from me by PM or email, please contact me by PM or at smokey@blackpowdersmoke.com. I just want to be sure I have reached everyone.

All in all, we were lucky. We did not lose our home, we only had uninsured damages, loss of food and a loss of income as we are among public school employees who are out of work for an undetermined time estimated to be up to two months. It has been one month so far. In addition,, I have two months of recovery ahead of me from my surgery this Friday October 12th. I can not thank you enough for your help.
