  7. I am just so grateful to wake up and discover that a woman was found in the rubble after midnight this morning. She is a 61 year old female who grabbed the hand of a firefighter. At least one person is believed to be missing and possibly be in the basement. I will keep everyone in my prayers and pray that these evil doing contractors pay the price for not following building procedures while trying to tear down the building next to the Salvation Army Thrift Store. Rest in Peace. Love going out to the Salvation Army who were working and helping people when they passed away tragically.

  8. How can we direct donations specifically to help rebuild the Salvation Army Family Store in Philadelphia?

  9. My prayers are with the dead. God knows what he’s doing!!
