Summit New Jersey's  Good Samaritan, Billy MacAdam needs your help…


                Recently, Billy MacAdam was beaten to within an inch of his life.  Stopping at night on Route 24 to help two strangers who were stranded proved to be a mistake.  The intoxicated man viscously turned on Billy and broke his leg, his hip and caused serious bleeding on Billy’s brain.  For most of us, this would be a traumatic life changing event, for Billy, who had a heart transplant 8 years ago, and is now on dialysis, and in need of a kidney transplant, this is just more bad luck.


                Billy is a longtime Summit resident, a recently retired Captain of the Summit Auxiliary Police Department and a serial volunteer at Summit events like the Easter Egg Hunt, Memorial Day Parade, 4th of July fireworks, National Night Out, and the Turkey Drive before Thanksgiving, just to name a few.


                Billy has been in rehab and unable to work.  Additionally, he has also lost his apartment and is now homeless and temporarily, until he gets back on his feet, living with his brother.  Before the incident, Billy was able to work a few hours a day as a crossing guard which, in addition to his disability check was barely sustaining him. 


                The little Other Fellow First Foundation (, which exists to assist Summit families in distress is helping Billy get back on his feet and secure enough financing for him to find an apartment and deal with his crushing load of expenses.


                Please help him if you can.
