A New Place For Tricia And Shayne

Tricia is a single mom working two jobs 6 days a week, raising her 6 year-old son, Shayne, in Pearl River, NY.


On Wednesday, February 1st, a fire in the downstairs neighbor's apartment made their home unlivable and they've lost most of their belongings. This campaign is to raise funds to help them move to a new place and replace some of their lost items.

CHANNEL 12 NEW STORY ON THE FIRE

Tricia just started a new 9-5 job at a Doctor's office 3 weeks ago and she has been a waitress at Kinchley's Tavern in Ramsey, NJ for almost 4 years.

Tricia and Shayne are both fans of the NY Rockland Boulders Baseball Team, and Tricia and her whole family are NY Yankees and NY Giants fans. However, little Shayne is a NY Mets fan and a Dallas Cowboys fan --which Tricia is fine with, but the rest of her family is highly upset about!!!
 

A neighbor across the street has been taking in various donations for both families.  At one point, on the day of the fire, there were a line of cars going down the street stopping by to donate whatever they could (Go Rockland County!!!).

Another neighbor kindly offered Tricia a studio apartment to stay in for a week, but she needs a two bedroom that will be a permanent residence. 

The funds being raised are to help pay for first month, last month, security, a bed for each of them (including linens), a couch, food and kitchen items, clothing, cleaning for salvageable items, and replacement for those that are not.

Tricia's birthday is on Valentine's Day, so let's make this the best birthday and Valentine's Day she could ever have!!!
