The residents at the Gateway Terrace Condominium all know Rolando Calachij, AKA Rony.  He is a full time cleaner for Gateway who works hard to keep the buildings clean and manage trash.
On March 27, while Rony was at work, a massive fire  was burning at his apartment building at 236 Harve Street in East Boston.  He was only allowed inside late that night and here is what he saw.

Rony is one of more than 20 people displaced by that fire.  He lost all his furniture, his TV, almost all of his clothes.  He is temporarily staying with a friend.

I am calling on all the Gateway owners and residents to help Rony in his time of hardship.  Please donate what you can.  I know how much this support would mean to him.

Thank you all very much!!!
