We welcome all friends, family, co-workers, or those just looking to help out by donating to Ashlee who was affected by the Hurricane.

As you know, many families were affected by Hurricane Sandy. Our good friend, boss, mentor, caregiver, and an overall caring individual Ashlee Smith, was one that was greatly devastated by the storm. Ashlee shows compassion, concern, and determination within the work place, her friendships, and her family life no matter the circumstances. She has already offered whatever she had left to her father and 8 year old niece. Unfortunately, she lost all of her belongings as well as her entire childhood home along with memories. Within the first days of the hurricane Ashlee worked day after day to gut the entire house to ensure that her father and her niece would not have to worry or experience the devastation. Within those days Ashlee had work hard to set up a new apartment for her father and niece leaving little time to do for herself. Thankfully the family and she have received many items of clothing through donations; however, as we all know times are tough. Getting back on her feet is going to be a major obstacle and now is the time for us to help her just as she has helped so many of us in the past. Ashlee is no stranger to overcoming obstacles having recently lost two of her best friends-her mother and sister within the same year. While she remains one of the strongest individuals we know, and at times stubborn to accept the help from others because she does not want to burden anyone, this is the time when she can use our help the most. With the upcoming holidays money can be tight for anyone, but for her it will be exceptionally difficult to afford even her own living expenses and necessities. Even the smallest donation will go a long way as Ashlee will begin rebuilding her life again and starting a new journey on her own. Thank you in advance for anything you may have to donate and for keeping her and their family in your thoughts.
