Sadly, a fire destroyed the Roda's home last Thursday 
Oct 26, 2006, at 5405 Jefferson Street in Riverdale Park. 
Unfortunately, they lost everything. 
Carlos and Lucia Roda have 3 children and 2 cousins that were
staying with them. They have insurance, but it will be awhile before 
that comes thru. They are working with Calvert Park Apartments 
in hopes of finding a temporary place to stay until their home is rebuilt. 

They were given several mattresses by the A&S Clothing and 
Furniture store, and coats from the Passion & Compassion Center
They are in urgent need of sheets, blankets, linens, diapers, 
furniture, beds, curtains, clothing and cash.

The three children are: 
Jefree, 11 year old boy, Size: shirt medium, pants 10, shoes 5 1/2
Migdely, 10 year old girl, Size: blouse medium, pants 9, shoes 4 1/2
and their youngest is a 2 year old boy.
