In Memory of Michaela Powell

Late on December 20th Michaela Powell and two other young women were tragically killed in a car accident in Woodbridge Township, New Jersey.

To know Michaela was to love her. She was a kind, caring, and ambitious young woman whose smile and energy was enough to light up a room. She loved music, animals, and spending time with her friends and family who she adored. She was finishing up her final semester at Montclair State University and had a bright future ahead of her.

Along with this terrible nightmare comes real financial hardship.

Linda  Powell is a long time local community activist here in Franklin Township. She is a member of the Franklin Township Task Force against the NESE compressor 206 and pipeline. She is a member of the JFK Club, Central Jersey Coalition Against Endless War and many other local organizations.

The costs of a funeral, missed time from work, among other expenses can make things more difficult for the family.

We want to facilitate getting the funds they need to them.  If you would like to make a contribution, you can do so directly through this GoFundMe Page. All funds raised will go directly toward funeral expenses and helping Linda and Tom with expenses during this difficult time.
