Jersey City family loses everything from fire

On October 11, 2019, early Friday morning, a row of homes on Wade Street, in Jersey City, NJ , caught on fire.  All of the homes were destroyed causing several people to be displaced, including Officer Valerie Carriere of the Jersey City Police Department and her family of Thirteen. 

The members of the Jersey City Police Department are extremely fortunate that Officer Carriere andfamily escaped the fire safely, however, they are left homeless and lost of of their possessions to the devastating fire. 

Officer Carriere and her family have a long road ahead as they try to rebuild and once again find normalcy in their lives.  We are hoping to raise enough money to help Officer Carriere and her family start the road to recovery.   

Please consider donating to her and her family.  Any contribution will help!!

Thank you!
