Help McNally Family After Loss of Kate and Jake

The Loss of a Loved One

On Thursday evening, June 24th, the McNally and Fugere families suffered the heartbreaking loss of their beloved Catherine “Kate” McNally to a tragic fire along with their entire family home. Kate's husband Dan and son Jake miraculously escaped the fire but have lost all of their possessions, and along with daughter Maureen Constance "Connie" of Washington, DC, all have lost their matriarch and family home. The family, their friends, and the community of Northwood, NH lost so much that day.

The Costs

In the aftermath of an event like this, the necessities of daily life all carry a cost- immediate shelter, clothing, food, and medical supplies are now primary concerns for Dan and Jake. Even more daunting are the costs associated with fire restoration, long-term housing, basic furnishings, and sadly funeral arrangements.

How You Can Help

Dan and Jake are proud men and would never ask for help. As a community, we can make sure they don't have to ask. By making a contribution to this fund, we can help ensure Kate's husband and children can cover some of the basics while they grieve her loss, and importantly, begin to consider how to make a new home after this devastating loss. The McNallys are a kind, strong, and giving family with deep roots in Northwood, having lived there for 40 years. Please consider helping them through this difficult time by making a contribution to this fund and surpassing the goal of $25,000 for necessities.
