Help Out Raphael, Fellow Brooklander In Need

We recently learned about Raphael, a neighbor who needs a helping hand right now, and thought we would pass along.  From a posting on Facebook:

This gofundme campaign is for one of our own Brookland neighbors. Their family van was stolen from right in front of their house in broad daylight which was needed for Raphael who is paralyzed. The van was recovered but so badly damaged it was totaled by their insurance company. If you can help this wonderful Brookland family get a new van which they need and deserve, please do.

The story was covered on Fox 5 News, you can check out the video below.


From what we understand the handicap accessible van was 18 years old, so the insurance company payout was negligible. If you have the means, please consider making a contribution.
