On Saturday, Jan. 18, Amanda Wilmoth and William Maynes, Defoe, lost their rental home and all of their belongings to a house fire. The family did not have rental insurance and are currently residing with family members in Shelbyville. Amanda, in addition to raising two children of her own, is raising and supporting the children of her late sister, who passed away in October 2008.
The family is in need of basically everything including, furniture, dishes, clothing and housing. They would prefer to stay in the Defoe or Pleasureville area if possible for the children.
