Account set up for family that lost home

January 25, 2014

A benefit account has been established at BBVA Compass Bank for the Purselley family, which lost its home to a fire early last Saturday morning.

The single-wide mobile home in the 8000 block of Glen Rose Highway, about 4 miles south of Granbury, was destroyed along with a truck and several other vehicles. The home was not insured, and the vehicles were only covered by liability insurance.

Kendall and Kay Purselley and their 17-year-old son Cash Purselley lived there.

Donations in the form of checks can be made out to either “The Purselley Family” or “Kendall Purselley” according to Kelly Dunagan, a teacher at Granbury High School who set up the account. Dunagan said that a fourth person, Cash’s 17-year-old cousin Steven Hays, was also living in the home.

Dunagan said that the family is temporarily staying in one bedroom of a neighbor’s home. The effort to assist the family includes gathering not only money, but also clothing, food and other essential items.

For information about the clothing needed or for more details, either call Dunagan (405-306-0410) or email her ([email protected]).

The two boys, Dunagan said, were using the shop and trucks there to run scrap metal before school to a scrap yard to earn income for the family, and also repaired cars in the shop.
