Uliano Family Fire Recovery Fund

$15,865 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 231 people in 49 months
While vacationing in Florida over the 4th of July weekend, Nanci & Tracy Uliano and their two sons received the tragic news that their home caught fire, by what appears to have been an electrical problem, and was destroyed. Most tragic, is that their beloved dogs, who were being cared for by a house sitter, perished in the fire.

Nanci and Tracy are longtime volunteers in the community and Tracy, a U.S. Army Veteran, now need our help during their recovery. They have suffered enough loss
already and should not be burdened by any additional financial expenses during the aftermath of the fire. It can be confusing and frustrating to deal with insurance companies and aid may be forthcoming, but only after all the paperwork is submitted. Plane tickets were purchased to fly home upon receiving the news, sufficient clothing is needed, temporary shelter and food....the list will surely go on for some time.

By starting a "Go Fund Me" fundraising page, WE can help a family meet their immediate needs as well as offering the financial and emotional support needed to give them a fresh start. No amount is too big or small....even just $5 can make a difference when we join together. ❤️

Thank you and may our prayers and support help our friends in their time of need.

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." - Helen Keller

One week ago today, the Ulianos lives changed after one heartbreaking phone call. Now, seven challenging days later, their hearts have been touched forever from the kindness and generosity that has been shared by so many. Your prayerful messages and loving words have given them strength and hope to create a new beginning in a new home some day soon. New memories will be made, but they will never forget the way you have all made them feel. Truly loved. ❤️

To those friends who are local, please feel free t join us this Wednesday, July 15th at San Remos in Woodbury for the special dining event to raise additional funds when a portion of your check is donated to the family.

Thanks Again!

Dearest Donators,

Today we can find comfort and gratitude knowing that together we have truly helped our friends, Nanci, Tracy, Garrett and Tyler in their time of need. In just 3 short days we have reached our initial goal of $10,000!

I had an emotional visit with them today and they are overwhelmed with thanks; not only for your generous donations, but for your loving prayers and blessing and words of encouragement for all that lies ahead.

I'm sad to report that their charming log cabin home is in a much more devastating state than any of us could understand from the original photo above. Although the outside of the home appears structurely in tact, the inside damaged beyond repair. Therefore, they have been given no other option but to demolish it and rebuild from the foundation up. I'm sharing this update because this means that they will now be displaced from their home for approximately one year.

According to them, the insurance company has been wonderful to work with, but our "Friendship Fund" that we have formed together will help them not only now, but with various incidentals in the year to come. We may have reached our goal, but any additional support is welcome and will continue to grow their fund. There is no "cap" on these efforts and the money is transferred daily for their immediate use on whatever they might need.

At this time, Nanci has asked to hold off on any material donations. The insurance company will provide them with a furnished residence and to store donation items for the next year would be difficult. They do have some clothing that was packed for their two week vacation and they plan to go shopping for specific necessities with your thoughtful donations.

Thank you again for your kind and generous responses to our call for help. Blessings to you all!
Devastating interior destruction.
