Fire Relief Fund for Mari Zuccala

Our co-worker and friend, Mari Zuccala has just lost nearly everything in a fire that started in her building around 3pm yesterday (November 7th).  Thankfully, both of her cats are alive and well, but Mari has lost most of her possessions.  The kitchen, living room, and bathroom are completely destroyed, and her bedroom is covered in soot and debris.  We all know that Mari is very independent, and not one who typically requests help.  This is a huge event that has turned her life upside-down and what we can do right now, in addition to supporting her personally, is offer whatever we can financially.  These funds will help Mari replace nearly everything from furniture, pots and pans, linens, pet supplies, clothes, food, etc.  Any contributions you can make would be greatly appreciated as these are huge, unforeseen expenses that Mari is facing right now.

If you have items to donate, please email me at [email redacted] and I will be happy to coordinate. 

Here are some pictures and videos of the damage to the inside:
