Thank you all for your heartfelt eagerness to help the Monroe family! We met as leaders of the brigade today to pull together the outpouring of new volunteer applications as a result of this tragedy. We also received many emails and calls that required our immediate attention.
In the mix of all this, the friends and family of the Monroe's are well aware of Neighbor Brigade and our mission to be helping hands for this family.
We will stay in contact with them and await how we can assist them as a Brigade.
Supporting the family's privacy is the biggest request right now and respecting the time that is needed in their deep grief and loss is essential.
At this time, there are two funds that will support the long term needs of this family and their challenges that lie ahead.
Please feel free to share with others and support if you can:
As a Brigade looking to serve our neighbors, the Monroe's, in their time of great loss, we encourage you to use this time as an opportunity to help others. Perhaps a friendly visit for someone who lives alone, some home made soup for someone with the flu, or any way to volunteer in assisting a neighbor in any kind of need.
We will continually update you as we receive our requests for help. Thank you for your care and attention to this crisis.
This email and the information it contains is intended for Neighbor Brigade volunteers only. Please do not forward this email. If you would like to encourage a friend to join, please direct them to www.neighborbrigade.org/chapters/FranklinMA. Thank you!
