Help Volunteers Rebuild After Devasting Housefire

My name is 1st Lt. Keith Rodriguez of the Toms River First Aid Squad.

At approximately 1130 AM on 12/13/18 the house of Toms River Volunteer First Aid Captain Alyssa Golembeski, her sister Firefighter/EMT Ashley Hollingsworth,  mother EMT Christine Golembeski (along with 3 other family members), caught fire. Captain Golembeski was trapped in the basement of the house and rescued by TRPD, sustaining superficial burns to her back and soles of her feet. The fire unfortunately destroyed the entire home (see pictures), leaving this family of dedicated, volunteer first responders homeless two weeks before Christmas. While homeowners insurance should cover the cost of rebuilding the house, this campaign aims to offset some of the costs associated with such an event; such as providing clothing, toiletries, and other household items that were lost after such a devastating event. This campaign has been authorized by the family and any and all donations would be greatly appreciated.
