My name is Francesco Nick DiPaolo. I am a volunteer fire fighter from NJ and try to help the community when I can. It is Deja vu all over again. Many of you supported me last year to help the flood victims of Baton Rogue. Unfortunately, our fellow Americans in Texas and Western Louisiana are battling one of the worst storms in this country's history. I am asking you to support me once again.
I am traveling with 2 other fire fighters (Jay Spags and Thomas Slinsky) and a boat on 8/29 to assist in the rescue efforts where Harvey hit the hardest. The flood waters are still there with more rain to come.
Our plan is to support the Cajun Navy and other local volunteer efforts, and use the donations collected from this page to provide immediate relief to victims. Like last time, I will purchase visa and home depot gift cards and distribute directly to the victims we help. I will chronicle my journey on social media to raise awareness and document where your donations are going. It doesn't get more grass roots than this.
I have a proven track record of volunteering, raising money through goFundme, and you can trust this money will go to the victims of Harvey. No dollar amount is too small, and sharing the link is just as valuable as a donation.
Thank you for all support and keep all these victims and the emergency responders in your thoughts and prayers.
