Marlboro House Fire - Help the Prokopenko Family

Please help the Prokopenkos, a local Marlboro family that was devastated by a house fire.

Early in the morning on December 20th, Marina, a single mother of three received the worst call imaginable. Her home was gone. Everything was lost. Two of her children were in the hospital and the third, Aleks, was killed in a house fire.

Please help this family. Even the smallest donation makes a difference. What they lost can never be replaced, but they need a place to live. The medical bills will be large and they have absolutely nothing four days before Christmas. 

After years of friendship with the family, I can state with the utmost conviction that I have never known kinder or more generous people, who are going through an impossible situation. Their pain is unimaginable, and we all must do anything that we can to help ease this tragedy.

The loss of a loved one will forever leave a hole in their hearts. Help to ensure that they can financially survive this time and be able to heal physically and emotionally.

The money will go towards finding the family a new home, funeral costs for Aleks, and all of the basic necessities that they need to replace. Every penny will go directly to the personal account of Marina Prokopenko.

Anything helps. Thank you.
