As many of the family and friends of Al & Danene DiSalvo know the night of Thanksgiving 2017 they had a fire at their home. The fire started in the ceiling of the second floor and traveled through most of that floor. Everything below on the first floor was destroyed by water and smoke damage. They have been displaced by this tragedy ever since. The Red Cross helped out in the beginning with necessities for the immediate future but unfortunately they are on their own right now and a lot of these costs are really starting accumulate as out of pocket expenses. Even just to have a meal they have to go out every night to eat. That alone has been a major expense feeding a family of five.
As family, friends, co-workers and racing family the DiSalvo's need our help. Immediately after the fire we were going to set up something to help them out. As never going through something like this before we thought the insurance company was going to step in and make everything ok. Unfortunately that did not happen and this is why we are calling on everyone for help now. The Insurance company is not going to kick in for quite a while. As of right now they are calling a hotel their home. Al , Danene, Nick, Joe , Jenna and their dog Sonny are all staying there. They have located a short term rental house that is furnished for them to live temporarily until they can rebuild their home.
They need to make a substantial deposit on the home, the furniture as well as a deposit to have Sonny stay in the home also. On top of that they need to start to rebuild their lives and try to get back to a sense of normalcy. Many things need to be purchased including clothes, bedding, toiletries & even food to put on the table.
This is the time of year for giving and I know things can be tight financially for some. If you can help in any way ...with any amount it is greatly appreciated. The goal we have set is just a number...whatever we can do to help with their financial burden it would be appreciated.
