Grandmother Lost Everything In Fire

On Thursday October 12th a pillar of the Englewood community, Jean Pettie, lost every possesion she had to a fire. Jean Pettie and her family were victims of a devastating house fire in Englewood, New Jersey.  The family home burnt down and they sadly lost everything they own. 

Thankfully, Miss Jean and her family is safe and uninjured, but they lost nearly everything in the fire.  This is devestating because many items cannot be replaced.  They are literally starting from scratch with nothing but the clothes on their backs. During such a stressful and difficult time, worrying about finances is an added  burden that they ideally shouldn't have to deal with. The family will use this fund to help them in replacing basic goods such as bedding, clothes, food, furniture, basic houselhold necessties, etc. 

Miss Jean has opened her home and fed many in the community. She has always been there to support others, fill their stomachs and their souls. So, please help us raise funds to allow them to get their life and belongings back together ASAP. They are amazing individuals and friends to many! Every little bit helps. Lets get them back on their feet as soon as possible. Please share this GoFundMe page with your contacts.

As a family friend and fellow Englewood, NJ resident I wanted to do something to help Ms. Pettie.  So, I set up this GoFund me page to help her raise money to acquire resources needed for basic daily living.  She will use the funds raised to replace property destroyed in the fire like: furnitire, bedding, clothing, shores, dishes, etc. Ms. Pettie and her son Stacey have

I thank you so much for any help you can offer. So many have lost so much.
