Asbury Park Fire Displaces Family of Five, Help Them Get On Their Feet

Sherrice Lyles and her children

A fire in Asbury Park yesterday has left a single mother and her four children, ages 2 through 11 without a suitable place to live.

Sherrice Lyles was sitting on the porch of the Prospect Ave home she moved into just last week yesterday afternoon when she smelled smoke and heard the alarms go off inside her home. She entered the house and saw flames in her son’s room and attempted to put out the blaze with a fire extinguisher.

The blaze was extinguished quickly and there were no injuries.

Restore Kranky Cycles

Kranky Cycles, a small bicyle shop in Highlands, opened in the Summer of 2011.  The store surived Irene and its first year while becoming an important part of the Highlands community and the significant cycling community in the area.

In Sandy, they lost the contents of the store…tools, parts, equipment and bikes.  Unfortunately, being such a young business, they do not qualify for FEMA or SBA funding.

Their goal is to raise $15,000 to reopen the store.  As of this writing they’ve raised $5,091.  Please help them as much as you can.
