Fatal East Orange fire

Golconda Temple No. 24 Prince Hall Shriners has continued to lead the way in charity but even WE are not exempt from catastrophe...

Many of our Jersey family may have  already hear about the fire this morning in East Orange, NJ that fatally blazed through several homes on North 17th St. leaving at least five people dead, including a 6-week-old child. Many of you may not know but this was the family of our Dear Noble Anthony White who just recently coped with the loss of his son.

This campaign was started to support the family to assist with necessary burial costs. We can only image the pain and heartache this family has already had to endure. So I ask you, especially during this Christmas season, please find it in your heart to help his family with this financial burden and continue to keep him, his family, and all other families affected by this catastrophic event in your prayers. Thank you
