Created April 11, 2019
Lorraine, age 72, was assaulted by a group of teenagers on April 10, 2019 as she was entering her apartment building. The youths stole her car, and led police in a chase that resulted in her car being wrecked. Lorraine’s insurance does not cover any of the cost of replacing the car, according to Lorraine, so the purpose of this fund is to enable her to buy another car. This is her only transportation, which she uses to take her grandson to and from school, and get to the store and medical appointments.
Pleaee help Lorraine to replace her car, and show her the community cares about her. All funds raised will go directly to Lorraine. 
I am not related to, nor do I know Lorraine other than through news accounts...just a member of the community that wants to right this wrong to some extent.

Hi donors. Well today we have a nice ending to a story that started tragically. Lorraine took delivery of a 2014 Subaru Forrester today (see cover photo). Pictured from left to right: Kitty Van Bortel (who generously marched the GoFundMe), Lorraine, and me (Roger). Lorraine expressed her thankfulness for all of you who made it possible for her to replace her car. She’s just overwhelmed by your kindness and generosity!
If you’re in the Rochester area you will be able to see her interview and the delivery of her car on tonight’s news. I know that Channel 10 and Spectrum news we’re there. I’ll post a link to their stories when available.

Thanks again for your generous gifts!!

This is it - the final day that donations will be matched -doubled - by Kitty Van Bortel. If someone donates $25, it becomes $50 after the match, and it ends tonight at midnight. If there’s anyone you haven’t told about the campaign, this is the last chance.

Thanks again to everyone who has donated and/or shared the campaign. Lorraine told me yesterday how blessed she feels about people coming alongside her to help. She said, “No one has ever done anything like this for ME. Thank you to everyone.” Lorraine is certainly a very sweet lady, and I know we all wish her nothing but the best. Thanks for your part in making her feel special.
