COLLINSVILLE, VA – “I feel devastated because, well, I totally lost everything. I lost everything and what I am going through is very difficult because it is not easy to have something and see that everything has gone to waste.”
Agustina Roldan was left homeless and without a car after an early morning blaze torched her Collinsville mobile home.
She says she was leaving work when she got a call to rush home because her neighbor’s trailer was burning up.
“When I arrived, my trailer hadn't burned yet, but something exploded and that's when my trailer started to burn,” Roldan said.
From clothing to documents, Roldan lost all her belongings and is now asking the community for help.
“Well, if they have clothes. I am not asking for new clothes even if they are used and dishes. With whatever they can help me with,” she explained.
She requests size small or medium in shirts, pants size 5, and shoes size 7 for her and size XL in shirts, pants size 38 and shoes size 10 for her boyfriend.
