On Tuesday March  12th a massive four alarm fire swept through an apartment building in Yonkers leaving 150 residents displaced. The fire blazed for 12 hours completely destroying all apartments on the upper levels of the building. Countless possessions and memories have been lost to those living there. One of these families is our beloved Jones family. 

Here is Charlie's description of that horrible night. 'Once I got to our place around 6 or so the entire area was engulfed in thick black smoke, I had to walk down Bronx River Pkwy to get to Alina and the kids. As I walked northbound all I could do was watch from Bronx River Parkway, which is the side our apartment was on, with flames shooting from the roof and near our windows on the 5th floor. I just stood there and cried.  It wasn’t about the material items.  We had just moved to Bronxville a year ago and purged a lot before we moved. For me it was the feeling we had finally found a home in Bronxville and now it was all gone.'

Charlie, Alina, Taylor, and London are all safe and thankful to be alive. But it will take considerable time to heal and move forward from this tragic event. The purpose of this GoFundMe is to help ease this process for them by providing as much support as possible so they can rebuild and move froward, emotionally and physically.

Let's do what we can for this amazing family and the man with the megawatt smile and heart of gold, Charlie Jones.
