Thanks to (归功于; 多亏) generous (慷慨的) donations (捐赠物; 捐赠) from East Texas neighbors (邻居), one family has a new home of their own (他们自己的房子).

The Moore family home was destroyed (毁掉; 摧毁) back in January when a storm (暴风雨) caused a tree on their property (房地产) to fall.

The tree fell on the Moore family's home on Raspberry street, outside of Frankston and near Lake Palestine.

"Then BOOM (轰鸣声). That tree came down (落下). I didn't know what hit our house," said LaShonda Moore.

The tree came down in LaShonda's kitchen (厨房), just feet from where she was sitting.

"I said 'Dad, dad a tree hit our house!', and he said 'oh, you've got to be kidding me (你在跟我开玩笑吧)', and I said 'yes, a tree hit our house'," Moore said.

The storms that knocked the tree onto their house left a big hole in the middle of their mobile home ([美国英语]<由汽车拖拉的>活动房屋,旅游居住车). It was damaged beyond repair (无法修理; 无法补救).

The Moores, who have a history of medical struggles, with a son who has autism (自闭症) and an adult with a seizure disorder (癫痫), didn't know what they were going to do.

They moved into a hotel temporarily (临时地) while they tried to figure out (想出; 弄明白) what to do, but when their money gave out (被用完,耗尽), they knew they would likely be homeless (无家可归的).

In the meantime (在此期间;与此同时), their neighbors came together to help out (帮助…解决困难,帮助…对付).

An anonymous (匿名的) donor (捐赠者) stepped in (插手,介入,干涉) and donated (捐赠) a new mobile home to replace (代替; 取代) the one that was destroyed.

However, actually (实际上; 事实上) moving the new mobile home onto their land was another financial (财政的,财务的;金融的;资金的) issue (问题). Neighbors pitched in (参与并帮助) to raise money (筹款;募捐), and just this week, the Moore's home was moved onto their land and the destroyed home was removed (搬开;拿走).

Thanks to a group of generous East Texas neighbors, the Moores are home again.
