Baristanet received an email plea to help a family whose life is in shambles after their home caught on fire. Gregory Bressler, Vice President of University Facilities at Montclair State University writes:

Earlier this week, Emilio Zambrana, a member of the University’s Mail Services team, experienced a devastating fire that completely destroyed his home. Fortunately, Emilio and his family are unharmed, but they are in need of basic items for their three small children.
Emilio’s children are in need of clothing and shoes: Elijah, 6 year old boy, clothing (size 7/8) and shoes, boots (size 12). Genesis, 3 year old girl, clothing (size 4T) and shoes, boots (size 8). Jacob, 1.5 year old boy, clothing (size 3T) and shoes, boots (size 7). Donations of basic items for the children, such as clothing and bedding (i.e.: crib, Pac N Play, bunk bed, etc.), are appreciated. A donation in the form of a gift card to department stores, such as Wal-Mart or Target, is a wonderful alternative and would also be appreciated./blockquote>
