More Information

I wanted to post further information regarding the situation with the house, as a few people have inquired about the validity of our request. On August 8th, 2010, someone took it upon themselves to ruin a family. Ms. Theresa Davis, residing at 502 Bob Armes Circle in Wartburg, TN was informed that her house had been burned intentionally. There have not been any arrests made as there were no witnesses. The family has been told that since there were no deaths related to the fire, and that it was not a business, the states Arson Task Force will not step in to do an investigation. Detective Larry Lawson of the Morgan County Sherrifs Department is the investigator in charge of the case.
We are currently waiting for a hard copy of the police report. The family was told it would be 10 days before one could be made available to us. Once a hard copy of the police report is available, I will scan it and attach it to the website. I will also take pictures of the damage and post them as well. Until then, people are able to contact the Morgan County Sherrifs Department or Fire Department to verify that, yes, 502 Bob Armes Circle was burned due to Arson
We understand that money is hard to come by these days, and understand the hesitancy when it comes to donating money to people you don’t know. This family is trying to get enough together to either rebuild their home or put a down payment on a double wide to put on the lot so they can bring their family back together. Building materials would also be appreciated. When they have a home to put them in, furniture, kitchen supplies and clothing would also be appreciated.
Every little bit helps, and I’m praying that word gets around to get these people that have helped so many get the help and home they deserve.
I will answer any other questions the best I can and hope to keep this updated with more information as it comes in.
Thank you for your patience.

Every Little Bit Helps

Theresa Davis Housefire

Posted in Uncategorized on August 11, 2010 by tdjj31

Ms. Theresa Davis is a disabled woman in Wartburg TN, who has given so much to the people.  She served in the U.S. Navy for eight years.  She has helped many people in her area by giving them rides, food, and even welcomed many homeless into her home until they have been able to stand on their own feet.  Her reward for these good deeds came on August 8th 2010, when someone committed arson and destroyed her home that she had recently been able to pay off.  What makes this worse is that due to her very low, fixed income, she had not been able to afford Homeowners Insurance.  Due to this tragic event, her family has had to be separated so they could all have a place to stay.  Her step-daughter, two grandchildren, and one on the way due in October have had to move an hour away. 

I’ve set up this blog because I was one of those people she helped.  I had only known her two weeks when my husband and I were in a situation without a place to stay, she gladly opened her home to us with no questions asked.  Now I’m trying to do the same for her.  If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.  I’m adding a PayPal Donation button, so every little bit helps.  I will add pictures soon, so everyone can see the devastation this woman has endured.

We are planning a benefit singing, so when the details are arranged, I will post them here and hope that everyone can spread the word and help this woman that has helped so many.
