Help the Bartko Family Recover

$5,520 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 109 people in 32 months
Jennifer Pouncy  ESSEX, MD

A malicious man may have destroyed their home, but he can't take away their spirit, their faith, or their love for their family, friends, and each other! The Bartko family has lost everything: their house, their posessions, their precious memories, but worse yet, their wonderful pets. If there is ever a family that deserves our help, it is most certainly Rose and Cathy. While justice is being served, let's help Rose and Cathy get back on their feet! Even a small donation can make a difference. Money donated will go towards providing daily necessities, such as shampoo, soap, socks, etc.

Non-monetary donations for the Bartko family can be dropped off at the Baltimore County Bus lot directly across from Kenwood High School at 600 Stemmers Run Road. Their hours are 9am - 5pm.

Clothing Donation Needs & Sizes
Mens Jeans: 34/30
Ladies Jeans: 14/16
Hooded Sweatshirts: Large/XLarge
Shoes: 8 and 8.5 Wide
Any warm clothes including jackets, socks, hats and gloves.

Does anyone know if ladies' tops are needed? I am the recipient of some L/XL clothing that I don't think I can use and would love to pay them forward. It mentions women's pants sizes but not tops.

Thank you Jennifer for starting this fund. We live a few houses down on Essex Ave and although we have never met the Barkto family we are more than happy to help anyway that we can. All are in our prayers. Liz, Dom, and Nico

I am disgusted by what this man apparently did to these ladies. God has a place for folks like him and it is full of flames for him to enjoy.
