Johnnice Chew Fire Fund
Organized by: Gina Speckman
Johnnice is a co-worker of mine at Chicago's North Shore Convention and Visitors Bureau where she has worked the past 13 years. As Johnnice was arriving at work on Wednesday, July 1, she received a call from her neighbor informing her that her house was engulfed in flames. By the time she raced back home, five fire trucks were working on her home and by the time they were finished, the house was a total loss with no roof, flooded with water and all the items inside had melted or burnt to nothing. She has lost everything. Although Johnnice has good insurance, she has a high deductible. I would like all of her friends and colleagues to rally to the occasion and help pay her deductible and help her replenish the basic necessities that she needs. As those of you know, she is a very proud person and does not like to ask for help. But I am reaching out on her behalf as she is a great person who is always there for others - let's be there for her.
