Hlavinka & Dellavecchio house fire

29915912_15264378390_r.jpegMy good friend Tara and her two children lost almost everything they owned a few weeks ago in a house fire that started in the townhouse next door. Tara is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She would do anything to help a friend.  My kids love her and her kids.

Tara was just informed that the new place they found to live will not have any of the day to day living supplies as they had previously hoped. The family has been staying in a hotel for more than three weeks with little but the clothes on their backs. Generous friends have provided for some  of their immediate personal needs, but the task of entirely restocking a house is daunting for Tara.  Her insurance will take care of large pieces of furniture, but it is uncertain how long it will take to see any of the other money to buy things like bandaids, trash bags, and food for the family and their very cute dog. Any help would be more than appreciated. It would be a mitzvah (good deed.)
