Two relief funds were started to help the people displaced by the sinkhole that opened underneath their Seffner home last week.

Jeffrey Bush, 37, was in his bedroom Thursday night when the ground opened and took him and everything else in his room. A search for him was called off Saturday and demolition of the home began on Sunday.

Five others in the house escaped: Jeremy Bush; his girlfriend, Rachel Wicker; their 2-year-old daughter; and Wickerís father and aunt.

The nonprofit Brandon Foundation is collecting money for them. To donate, call (813) 689-6889 and pay by credit card or send a check to Brandon Foundation, Attention: Sinkhole Family Relief, P.O. Box 3197, Brandon FL 33509.

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue also has a relief fund. For information and to donate, go to www.firefighter-relief.com.
