Sheli's Fire Damage Emergency Fund

Sheli Steinberg,  a good friend of ours, returned home yesterday evening to find her apartment in Kew Gardens Hills, Queens completely gutted by a fire which ravaged the building earlier in the day. Three apartments were effected but hers was completely destroyed, including all of her possesions inside.  These included her clothing, electronics, family heirlooms and many irreplacable things. She now, quite literally, finds herself with nothing - not even basic clothing or bare essentials to get her through the next few days.

She is an extremely good and caring person who is always the first one to raise her hand in support of someone in need, whether she knows them personally or not. She also likes to help out on an anonymous basis because helping is in her blood, not getting credit for the help provided.

Now, the tables have been tragically turned and she is the one in need of some assistance to attempt to get back on her feet. However, Sheli is humble and modest and asking help for herself goes against her better nature. Please do what you can - any financial support through this page would be a huge mitzva, literally helping a wonderful and selfless human being.

Any amount big or small will be a huge help.

Thank you,
Her concerned friends.
