Porch

I’ve lived in my condo for 10 years. 8 of it was with a roommate, who was the former owner. Most of the time we could have cared less about the back porch. And even still, I’ve never had a real reason to sit back there. And truth be told, a few years ago, we had someone climb on and take a plastic chair. Its a long story about the house next door having a fire, and Chelsea being.. well Chelsea.

Help my neighbors in Chelsea, MA

Currently the town I live in, Chelsea, Massachusetts is the hardest hit city in the town by COVID19. Not only are we the most hit with cases so far (as of 4/22), we’re also a town of service people, so many of my friends and neighbors are out of work. Lots of hard working folks. Sometimes I feel like I’m one of the few on my street that is still employed.

This is picture from my friend Matt Frank who took a photo of the line to get food.

And the link yesterday (4/21/2020) to the Chelsea Collaborative (courtesy of WBZ):

We won’t be able to sustain feeding people without outside help. I’ve given some, and plan to give more, but we need more help.

If you can give, please give to the UnitedWay;’s One Chelsea Fund here:
