by AmericasKeepersAdmin on June 06, 2020

A fire in Detroit destroyed a man’s home and work truck, but the community has rallied together to help him rebuild his dream.

Roderick Reynolds got a phone call around 4 am on Thursday morning that the home that he had been working on 24/7 to build for his family had been destroyed in a fire.

Reynolds had purchased the home around a year ago, and during the coronavirus pandemic he had poured his heart and soul into the home because he could no longer afford the rent of where he was staying.

“Work got really slow due to the coronavirus. I could no longer afford my lease out there. So I came here and started putting this home together for my family.”
– Roderick Reynolds

Reynolds estimated that the home was only a few weeks away from being completed and he had put $50,000 into remodeling the home.

“This for them, I don’t care about nothing. I just want my kids to be straight. That’s it. I’ve got to get food on the table. I’ve got kids and I’m a man so I’ve got to make sure I take care of them.”

However Reynolds friends’ created a Go Fund Me page for him and the outpouring of support has been overwhelming. Within 7 hours the page raised $187,000

Reynolds went from feeling completely defeated to feeling overwhelmingly blessed as people contributed to the Go Fund Me.

“In under 24 hours, the house can be replaced and then some. I’m trying not to cry.”
“Every penny, every dollar, every cent added up, it all counted. I’m gonna make sure my family is taken care of then I’m going to get back and make sure other families are taken care of.”
