Help Nicholas Hickey Family

Our women's group, Sister†Hood, is raising funds to help one of our members, Tracy - a wife and mother of five, provide for their family's unexpected expenses after their 17 year old son, Nicholas Hickey, was tragically struck and killed by a car on the evening of January 17, 2018.

Please help in whatever way you can, as the family has limited means to provide for unexpected costs in this most difficult time.
