Gaffney Family Fire Fund

$25,500 of $27,500 goal

Created February 1, 2019
January 31, 2019 Tim Gaffney woke to the smell of smoke. The entire garage was engulfed and it was quickly moving to the house. He woke Ryan and Tara and they were able to get out. Janeen and Sofia were in MA at a skating event. 

Flash forward 24 hours and my oldest friend in the world and her family are homeless. 

The Red Cross has put them up in a hotel and friends have rallied around them.  But this is just day 1
Our hope of course is that insurance will cover the larger losses. House. Cars. Boat. It’s all the small things that add up.  Clothes. Toiletries. Shoes. Coats. 

We are asking for any help you can provide to get this family through the next really difficult months until they find their new normal.  

Anyone not comfortable with sending money is more than welcome to send gift cards.  Anything- I mean anything - will be so appreciated. 

Thank you on on behalf of Tim. Janeen, Ryan, Sofia and Tara.

The family finished moving into their rental home today. Kids love it! And they were planning to finally bring Sara home. Tons to do but grateful to be out of the hotel.

Great great news! Looks like we’ve found a new home for the next year. About 10 minutes from their current house, close to both schools and all other activities! They could me in next week!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Sunday morning.... the family is completely overwhelmed with the outpouring of support I am blown away as well. There are no words to thank you enough.

Some good news - Gypsy the cat was found and is happy back with her family at the hotel. Sara is still with generous neighbors for now and Janeen will visit her today.

Sofia has a great performance yesterday and is on her way home from Boston. I think Janeen will feel much better when they are all together.

They continue to work their way slowly through the maze of things to do. I’m sure the kids are looking forward to school on Tuesday to bring some semblance of normalcy to the day.

Thanks again for all the love and support.
