Jennifer Beard's Victim Relief Fund

Our dear friend Jennifer Beard was the victim of a senseless shooting at her Halloween party on Oct 29th. She is recovering from multiple gunshot wounds and her doctors have told us that she is lucky to be alive.  Another victim of the shooting, Michael McCloskey, passed away this weekend. Our hearts ache for Michael, his friends and family, and for our dear friend Jen.  

Jen has already spent several days in the emergency room and in the intensive care unit.  So far it sounds like Jen will survive, but she has a long road of recovery ahead of her and she is at risk for complications along the way. 

Jen does not have medical insurance and her bills and responsibilities are mounting. Between the clean up effort that will be involved to get her home restored to normal after the shooting, fostering of her 3 beloved dogs while she is immobile and ongoing after care, she needs some help from the community.

Jen is one of the kindest and most giving human beings you will ever encounter.  Her spirit is unbreakable. She is a fighter.   We want to help Jen win this fight.

If you can, please help our friend Jen.

Anything you donate will go towards her ongoing recovery and medical expenses.  

If you may be able to help in some other way such as fostering her dogs, etc, please feel free to get in touch. Anything helps!
