Zavarella Relief Fund

On the night of September 27,2020, ones worst nightmare became a reality for my parents,  Rich and Dawn Zavarella. Thankfully everyone is safe. 28 years of hard work was ripped away from them in a matter of a few short minutes in a house fire, losing most of their belongings and where they brought home and raised their children. Anyone that knows my parents are aware of their worth ethic, are humble and help others whenever they are presented with an opportunity. The idea of this at first was not comfortable with them and still does not sit all that well. After some convincing and with help being offered from every direction, this is the best way support can be offered to them and get them on their way to better days. With everything being so fresh and uncertain right now, when they’re ready any help received will support them for the rough road ahead on rebuilding their life. 

Again as I’ve mentioned over and over again, we can’t thank our family and friends and everyone in between for the outpouring of support during this trying time. It has not gone unnoticed and is very much appreciated. 

With much gratitude, 
Brittany Schwan
