Fire Takes Everything! Please Help Jill!

Jill Paolini grew up in Westborough and graduated from WHS in 1987. She now lives in Austin TX with her two young sons. On 2/2/14, Jill's apartment was completely destroyed by a fire. She lost everything - save for her keys, phone and dog. FORTUNATELY, the boys were not home when the fire struck. Physically Jill is okay, but as you can imagine, this loss is devastating.

If you know Jill, you know she was just starting a new chapter in her life as a single mom. You also know that she is a resilient, spirited, creative woman who won't hesitate to help someone in need.

For those of us not geographically close to Jill, I've set up this page so folks can make donations which will go directly to Jill for her to use as needed for her and the boys. I know her friends in Austin will rally around her, but Westborough/Boston is home and I know there are many folks who want to help.

So do what you can. And count your blessings!
