Danielle's Home Recovery Fund

Hi friends, family, strangers, neighbors, etc.: 

My sister, Danielle O'Callaghan, had to evacuate her apartment that she shared with her boyfriend, Josh, and two daughters, Sarah, age 10, and Ellie, age 9 months. The reason being that the dry cleaning business she lived above went on fire and caused smoke damage causing her to have to get rid of all of her belongings - clothes, baby toys, furniture, etc. And thank God for the local fire departments because they rescued their dog, Jax, in enough time before the chemicals and smoke harmed him. If they didn't, she would have lost her dog as well. 

Here's a link to the story posted by the Dumont Volunteer Fire Department. (It should be the first story and set of pictures - happened at 44-46 Grant Avenue)

Unfortunately, my sister did not have renter's insurance so is now forced to bounce back on her own. However, this willb e even more difficult, as they are struggling to pay for her boyfriend's medical bills at the same time. He has a heart conditiion that put  him in the hospital for a few weeks a few months ago and he underwent surgery. Thankfully, he is doing better and getting back to work, but they are drowning in his medical bills, rent, and taking care of the two kids along with his son, Dylan. (Dylan lives at the apartment with them part time). 

My family would so appreciate any amount that you can donate to help them bring their heads above water. They are a hard working and love family who have hit hard times, but they only say God dishes out only what you can handle. Please help them get through this and alleviate some of the damage, not just property, but financially, that they have encountered. Prayers and well wishes are welcome too! 

If you can't donate money, but have any clothes or children's toys, please contact me at [email redacted] and I can provde you with details on what sizes and where to send those to. 

Thank you in advance for your support! 

Love the O'Callaghan Clan :)
