Vacca Family

In March, my dearest friend Catherine Vacca and her grandparents Ralph and Catherine Vacca of Marlborough, woke up to their house being caught on fire, starting in their kitchen. Thankfully, the Vacca’s granddaughter woke up to this tragedy   and was able to help both of her grandparents out of the house for safety. In my eyes, she is a true hero. Thankfully Catherine’s cat Tino was able to be rescued by a fire fighter, but her grandfathers dog, Heidi suffered from severe inhalation complications and wasn’t able to make it. The Vacca family is truly blessed to be able to survive such a traumatic event. They will not be able to be living in their house, due to damage and it will take months for renovations. Thankfully, Catherine and both of her grandparents have a place to stay while this takes place. But, they will be in need of donations for their personal items that were lost, as well as other things need for their home. I’m a very close friend of Catherine and had the pleasure of meeting her grandparents from time to time. They are such a loving and beautiful family and are so selfless. Helping them move forward after this event would benefit them to recover and I know they would feel so greatful and appreciated!
