John Blaney; House Fire Total Loss

My names is Kristen OMelia and I work for the Department of Developmental Disabilities.  I am a co-worker of John Blaney ofr the past 8 years.  John Blaney from the Metro Boston DDS Regional Office experienced a 100% loss of his home and goods on Thurdsay December 28th in a horrific house fire!  John, his wife and  two children are all safe and are currently staying with a relative.  Tragiclly they lost the beloved family dog and cat.  

It is our goal to financially support John and his family during this tragedy.   We ask that you donate whatever you are comfortable with to help them with basic needs at this time and prepare for larger needs in the future.  I know John and his family will be forever grateful for your help.  All donations will be for the Blaney family directly.

Thank you
