Entire Home Destroyed in Fire- Family Needs Help

Thanksgiving is about being thankful for what you have and on the day after Vivian and her family lost their entire home and all their belongings in a fire.

For those who are unaware, Vivian is a manager for patient access in the Emergency Department at a hospital on Long Island. She has been gracefully handling the stress of working on the front lines during a pandemic, and now she needs our help.

Vivian lives with her two young boys, ages 4 and 8, as well as her elderly parents. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured as they escaped the home, but her mother did sustain non-life threatening injuries while rushing out of the house after smoke inhalation. 

2020 has been a crazy year, and now right before the holiday season they will all be without a place to call home.  If this year has taught us anything it is that we can still support each other from a distance. Therefore, we are asking for any amount of money to help this family rebuild their lives. 

Any clothing or toys for the boys as the holiday approaches are greatly appreciated and you can reach out to me to collect.
