Help Nicholas Hickey Family

$3,085 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 32 people in 16 months
Created January 18, 2018
Our women's group, Sister†Hood, is raising funds to help one of our members, Tracy - a wife and mother of five, provide for their family's unexpected expenses after their 17 year old son, Nicholas Hickey, was tragically struck and killed by a car on the evening of January 17, 2018.

Please help in whatever way you can, as the family has limited means to provide for unexpected costs in this most difficult time.

The local Ottawa news carries further details of this tragic incident should you wish more information, with the Ottawa Police Press Release of January 18, 2018 below:

Unfortunately due to the nature of this accident the family does not qualify for any subsidy regarding their funeral costs and associated costs so will have to pay for everything themselves at this time.
