My next door neighbor's home was destroyed due to a senseless act of vandalism. Please donate what you can to help, rebuild his home!

Msgt Eric Carver is with the 106th Rescue Wing, in Westhampton Beach, NY. Eric is a NYS Trooper, with the Riverside/Riverhead Barrakcs, and also a member of the NY Air National Guard. If this isn't enough ... In his free time (sacarsim intended) He currently sits as President of The Swan Lake Civic Assn.; where he has been volunteering since he moved into our community.

Eric is currently deployed overseas, for the last 3.5 months... defending our country!!

Eric's home was broken into on 12/27/12. They sole from him, set his house on fire, which killed his friends cat who was house sitting for him. They also stole his truck...which has now been recovered.  All of Eric's belongings, including those of his late mother, were either melted beyond recognition or reduced to total ashes. 

Eric is a great guy, and a fantastic friend. Anyone who know's him, would agree that Eric is our real life hero, respected and loved by many in our community.

Our young neighbor, Thomas who is the 10 y.o son, of Chris and Debbie Roach. Has selflessly used his Christmas money to purchase support bracelets to help raise funds for Eric's rebuild. His mother and I, started a small Facebook event to sell the bracelets and it quickly turned into more.  People not only asking to buy them, but to make cash donations. Leading me to this site.

Links to both the Facebook bracelet event and support group made, can be found to the left of this story.

The Swan Lake Park, Civic Assn. will be hosting a open to the public event on 1/12/13, from approx. 1pm-5pm to sell bracelets, bake sale and raffle's!
