Firefighters rescuing my brother and dog - Riverhead radio local link

Our most excellent friend and colleague, Mike Truszkowski, along with his mother, brother and four-legged friend, sadly lost their home on Sunday to an accidental fire in Riverhead, NY.  Although the exterior is still in tact, their belongings are gone and their home is no longer habitable.   They are living temporarily on campgrounds while they plan what to do and where to go next. 

For those of you that have the privilege to know Mike, you know what a genuine, giving and selfless person he truly is.  Always putting the needs of others before himself, which is why we are asking for your help now to support Mike and his family at this difficult time.

If you can,  please take the time to give a little to help this family get back on their feet.

Thank you.

Were almost done putting up the sheetrock in the house. We're going to have a bit of a slow moment with the flooring and paint because of costs but other then that things are slowly moving along..

I wanted to thank anyone who helped us to get to this point with donations and sharing; we got alot of support. At this point were hoping to move in just before Christmas and that itself would be amazing.
