Help Albright Family Recover from Train Disaster

Donation protected
Please help our dear friends, the Albright family, get back on their feet after suffering terrible illness, exile and debt from the East Palestine train disaster in February '23. Click to Read Their Difficult Story in New York Times

The Albright family fled E. Palestine after a train carrying toxic chemicals derailed 1/2 mile from their Ohio home. After inhaling the fumes for many days, Chris Albright is now suffering from a debilitating heart condition and is completely unable to work & earn income. They were forced to flee to Pennsylvania and live in a hotel for 4 months. Now, with only a few dollars to their name, they've had no choice but to move back to their poisoned East Palestine home, facing personal, medical and financial crises.

Chris & Jessica plus daughters Evy, Lainy, Kaedance really need your help to get back on their feet and find a healthier home & life. Please donate.
