Help Nancy

$36,820 of $30,000 goal

Created October 3, 2018
On October 2nd we had a brutal line of storms roll through northern Westchester. That night, during the peak of the storms, Nancy Haggerty had a major house fire that left the house severely damaged. She is still waiting to find out about the status of her cats as well.

If you know Nancy, you know she is kind hearted, an amazing spirit, loves her community as well as active in sports, and one of the most selfless people I know. You may also know she is independent, strong willed and does not like assistance with anything (except the occasional tech support).

Nancy would never ask anything from anyone even at this time of great need. So on her behalf and without her knowledge (so far) we've set up a gofundme for Nancy to try and rally as much support and well wishes to help Nancy during this rough time.
Any amount large or small will be helpful.

We aren’t sharing this on Facebook walls yet because we don’t want her to know about it yet. But please feel free to share to others in Facebook messenger or via email.
Please feel free to reach out to Nancy as well, but understand she has been very occupied, and is going through a lot and may not get back to you quickly.
Thank you for your time and for supporting Nancy in her time of need.

Happy Tuesday! I don't have much to post today, but it's quality over quantity today.

- Nancy's colleague Peter Kramer at the Journal News is working on some big help, but needs help composing the application. Email him at pkramer@lohud.com with why you love Nancy.
- The top floor of the house is cleared out. That means we're about ready to get some inspections done. More to come on that.
- We hit the goal over the weekend, but please keep spreading the word!

Hi everyone!

My apologies for not posting any updates over the weekend, it's been hectic all around. I should also note, there is another GoFundMe page for Nancy that was started by her friend Kristene ( https://www.gofundme.com/somers-house-fire). The combined show of support is truly staggering,

Here's where things are at...

- The basement and first floor are done!
- The bathroom and smaller room on the top floor are also cleared out.
- The other two cats have been found and laid to rest.
- Everyone who's donated is awesome.
- We've started a slack to help coordinate efforts. If you'd like to get in on it, email me for details.
- Nancy has a PO box set up for anyone who'd prefer to send things via snail mail, email me for the details.
- Did I mention the awesomeness of everyone who's donated?

Hi everyone!

A few of us were over there today and got started on cleaning up, but there's still a lot to do. It looks like there are going to be about a dozen people over tomorrow, and a potentially bigger turnout on Saturday. I don't know what kind of turnout there will be on Sunday, but I expect there will still be plenty to do. That might be a good day to work on trying to clean and pack up any saveable items.

Nancy found out about our endeavor, so feel free to share it on your social media platform of choice. She is also overwhelmed by the outpouring of support (you all rock!), and is beyond grateful for everything everyone has done so far.

Thank you so much everyone who's donated so far, it's truly heartwarming to see such an outpouring of support for Nancy in her time of need.

A quick update on where things are at:
- She's staying with her next door neighbors for the time being.
- She found the remains of at least one of the cats, the others are still unaccounted for, but it does not look good :(
- She has a dumpster arriving tomorrow to begin cleaning up. I'll also be going over to assist as I can.
- We've put together a care package of basics for her, and will deliver it tomorrow.
- I'll find out if there's anything else she needs when I'm there tomorrow, and will post an update when I have more information.
- If you're trying to reach her, you may need to try her work cell phone. Her personal phone got misplaced sometime before the fire. Email and/or Facebook should also work.
