Sammie & Yves Rebuilding Fund

$3,090 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 42 people in 32 months

Heartbreaking news from 161 Mott. 

Our friends, Yves and Sammie, lost their home in a devasting fire on Sunday 20 November. Nothing survived. Clothes, furniture, memories, awards, photos, artworks - In 20 minutes, 73 years of Yves’ life was reduced to ashes.

Despite Yves’ impenetrable optimism, this Gofundme page will help smooth the transition to a new beginning by funding the necessary expenses i.e. finding a new apartment, a winter wardrobe, toys for Sammie, furniture and whatever it takes to rebuild their lives.

They have been a fixture of our community, we owe it to them to help in this time of crisis. 

Yves and Sammie send heartfelt thanks to the NYFD 55 - the best & the bravest. 

“I've had a bumpy road, now I have a smooth highway to a new beginning.” - Yves Claude
