Help a Family in Need

Yesterday, my new neighbors,  (names and pictures withheld for safety reasons), a young family with a new baby  were victims of a violent racial hate crime and property vandalization.  Again this morning someone was seen lurking in their backyard leaving them feeling on edge and at risk for their lives. Each time police were called and both times only reports were filed. Understandably, they are still terrified without protection in their new home and town, away from loved ones.

I'm so sad to have this happen in my neighborhood. Please show some support to this family! The purpose of this fundraiser is to help to raise money URGENTLY for a home security system (and the service fees) to help protect this family, give peace of mind, and remind them of the love of humanity, even from strangers, does exist.

There is so much going on in our country and world today but we need to stand together and help make a difference right here in our own families and communities. For those of you looking for an honest place to donate your hard earned dollar, this family would be so relieved. Even $5 means something!

Thank you so much for whatever donation you can make during these difficult times. Even if you can’t, you can help by sharing this link to give others the chance to help out!
