Posted: December 19, 2011 - 6:04pm

In light of the horrendous murder of Deloris Gillespie, who was set on fire in her apartment building elevator on Saturday, December 17, Council Member Letitia James and the community have set up a rehabilitation fund to assist her family in their time of need.

“We come together to support a local family in need today. I believe that it is the responsibility of the community to hold up their neighbors in tragic times such as these; therefore we will do whatever we can to make sense of this gruesome crime, and more importantly to help put the lives of the family members of Deloris Gillespie back together. Family and friends remember Deloris as a generous, active member of her community; she fed and clothed the hungry, worked closely with the 77th Precinct Community Council, as well as was a dedicated U.S. Postal Service employee.”

Donations for Deloris Gillespie can be sent to Carver Federal Savings Bank, to the Victims Rehabilitation Fund set up by the community with the assistance of Council Member Letitia James. Please reference account number 801281750 on your check. Carver Federal Savings Bank is located at 4 Hanson Place, Brooklyn, NY, 11217.
