Peter and Sharon Van Antwerp fled their home yesterday with very little belongings. They have lived in this home for 40 years. They raised 3 children in this home and help take care of their 5 grandchildren. Most things that were lost will not be able to be replaced. Although with our help, we can make it a little easier for them to live day by day while figuring out the next step. Peter and Sharon are amazing people and we hope you can help support them after this terrible accident.
As the APP quoted Peter saying, he takes things in strides. On Sept. 11, 2001, Peter was late to work because his daughter couldn't decide what to wear to school. He worked on the 88th floor of One World Trade Center. On Thursday he was supposed to watch his 2 grandsons, 1 and 3. He puts things in perspective, everyone's ok and they will start over. Peter collected 9/11 memorial items that were lost in the fire. We encourage you to please reach out if you can help him start his collection again.
Any clothes or household items that can be donated are also accepted. They need pajamas, jeans, sweaters, sweats, t shirts, shoes, and coats. Pete is a size 38 pants or large clothes and a 9W shoe. Sharon is a size 6/medium and a 5 1/2 shoe.
