There was a tragic fire today in our Village. Nyack resident Jarnali Kaur died in the blaze and many families have been displaced. The Red Cross is working to temporarily re-locate the families, some of whom have infants and school aged children. Most families lost everything.
The Red Cross can not take donations specifically for any individual tragedy however a local church that is attended by many of the displaced families has offered to accept clothing and other household donations. The Reverend Raymond Castro of the Iglesia La Mision Church, 11 Division Ave in Nyack, will accept donations of clothing, household items, electronics and other things that Nyack residents want to donate. There will be a collection box in Nyack Village Hall.
If you are interested in donating gift cards so that the families can purchase needed items, we will deliver them to the families. Gently used clothing and or gift cards, particularly for the children(a four month old infant(boy), a six month old baby(boy) a first grader(boy)a fourth grader(girl) and an eleventh grader(boy)will be so welcome.
One of the greatest things about our Village is how we all join together to help each other during dark times. This is one of them.
