Desanges Family House Fire Recovery

$6,628 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 113 people in 18 months
Created December 26, 2017
On Tuesday, December 26th, 2017, at 6 AM I got a call from my mother worried because our neighbor's house across the street (1533 Hyde Park Ave, Hyde Park, MA) was on fire. The firefighters were at the scene. I took action and instantly called my childhood friend Bernadine Desanges, whose family still resides there.  8 of her family members have been displaced. Boston Fire Department estimated $100,000 in damages.

 Thankfully, the family is safe and unharmed, but they lost nearly everything in the fire. No family deserves to go through this especially the day after Christmas. With the permission of my childhood friend, Bernadine, I have created this account.

Please help us raise funds to allow them to get their life and belongings back together. They are amazing, loving, caring, hardworking individuals and friends to many! Every little bit helps. Let's get them back on their feet as soon as possible. Please share this GoFundMe page with your contacts.

Help spread the word!

As mentioned previously, I’ve known Bernadine and her family since my parents bought the house across the street, 17 years ago, they welcomed us to the neighborhood with open arms.

I want to thank all of you that have been sharing the post as well as those of you who have donated, all is appreciated. I have and will continue to keep Bernadine in the loop. Currently we have raised $1,115.

This money will be going directly to the family. I plan to keep this campaign going, providing the family with funds on a weekly basis.

Thank you all!
