Default A terrible tragedy has struck the family of an NJPPC member&they have asked for help

An awful tragedy has struck the family of NJPPC Member & Sponsor Francine Steele of ProRoc Marine - Brick NJ.

Francine's cousin's family was victim of a tragic fire. Francine's Cousin's fiancee' has burns that cover 80% of his body (he will be in the hospital for over 1yr) and they lost 3 of their 4 children in the fire. Their 4 month old baby survived and is still in the hospital.

A link to the newspaper story covering this awful tragedy is here: http://www.nj.com/news/ledger/jersey...2794291631.xml

Francine has requested that I forward the following information to NJPPC members and others that I may know to see if anyone would consider helping the family in this terrible time of need:

Donations should be payable to:

Joan Hunter for the Benefit of Nicole Valente
Fleet Bank Pohatcong Office
707 New Brunswick Avenue
Phillipsburg, New Jersey 08865

Francine said that it would be great if they acknowledged that they are NJPPC or OSO members, so appropriate thank yous may be sent.

If anyone has any questions, please contact Francine directly at [email protected] Francine receives all her email at that address.

Thanks for your consideration.
