Cortese Home Lost to Fire

In a time of such devastation and peril all around, we, too, are experiencing it’s painful grip. Today, Debbie and Phil Cortese, daughter of Terry Lalor, sister of Donna Lalor-Malico, and Trish Lalor Armstrong from East Northport NY, lost their home in Santa Rosa, California as a result of the fast moving wildfires that are ravaging California.  In addition, their son, Nicholas, lost everything he had in a rental apartment in the area. Destruction of this magnitude is unimaginable and to start over daunting. 

We are giving thanks that they are all safe and unharmed, yet we now need to help them!  Please open your hearts and your pockets to help, Debbie, Phil and Nicholas begin to rebuild their ravaged worlds. No donation is too small. The money will be used to help provide shelter, clothing, food, and all necessities as everything they own was lost in the fire.  The only thing they have are the clothes they were wearing when they were forced to evacuate.   All funds raised in this campaign will be directly transferred to the family from Go Fund Me.
