Zachary is a sophomore at Susan Wagner High School. Prior to the storm, his family rented a bungalow in Midland Beach, one of the hardest hit areas in Staten Island. The bungalow was completely destroyed and they lost all of their possessions. To make matters worse for the family, they had just finished fixing up the bungalow installing all new appliances. Unfortunately the family has no renters insurance so none of their possessions will be covered by insurance and FEMA has given the family just enough money to only cover two months rent.
Zack lives with his father Joseph and their Pekinese dog Yoshi. They are temporarily staying with friends while his father looks for a place for them to live. Zack’s father is retired and living on a fixed income.
Zack is a good student who loves sports and is enrolled in the sports management program in school. When asked what they needed most he stated that he just wanted some more clothes. When they evacuated they left their bungalow with only the clothes on their back.
Help us get Zach and his father Joe into a suitable apartment and back up on their feet.
