Arlene Shapiro’s Fire Loss Fund

This past Thursday morning  our friend, Arlene Shapiro, barely escaped a fast moving electrical fire arising behind her bed pillows’ in her apartment, and has lost almost everything she owns. Our friend  is not injured, but as you might imagine, she is striving to do her best salvaging through the wreckage to save a few precious items if any. Volunteers & friends old and new & wonderful strangers are contributing.

Fire trucks and fireman from Station 69 worked for hours to save the building as flames poured 
out the windows and Arlene’s bedroom ceiling. They threw all the burning materials out the windows that were then hosed down. The entire unit is gone.  The above picture is Arlene’s bedroom that was destroyed in minutes. She was up because she has been sick which is a miracle.

This “Go Fund Me” page is set up so that you can help directly and make an enormous difference over the next eight months. 

We love Arlene. Please pray for her to to come back being the generous spirit we know her to be.

One of our affiliations Sarahs Tent has started this fund with a first donation. Please contribute what you can.
