Help the Frew Family recover from Business Fire

Hello everyone! Our names are Gina, Gillian and Michael, and we are asking for your help. 

Our parents own and operate the food truck called Not Just Blowin’ Smoke.

Based in Naugatuck, CT, we are a small local business that provides delicious smoked BBQ to the communities around us. 

With a heavy heart, it is devastating to announce that on 12/23, our food truck caught on fire. This is our parents livelihood; their income and their business that they started together. 

On countless occasions they have given back to communities, businesses, and even just a friendly neighbor or two.

Between supply, the truck itself, and other accessories such as a generator and smokers to power the business, there is such extensive damages that the food truck is beyond repair. 

Between Covid restricting the amount of events we could partake in, and now not even having a truck to be able to use, we are at a stand still. 

Please help our parents get back on their feet. Every little bit counts.
