On Thursday, soon after they heard that Deborah Osment and her son had lost their rental home and nearly all of their belongs in a fire early that morning, friends Susan Cook and Lois Walter got to work setting up a YouCaring.com fundraising site to help them get back on their feet.
Osment, a single mom, and her son are well known within the community — Deborah is a waitress at Chrone’s in Mountainside and her son is a student at Westfield High School. For now, the Red Cross has provided them with a motel room until Sunday.
“She’s really hoping to get into a rental as soon as possible,” Cook said.
