Friday’s Fire Fundraiser, auction items and rent insurance
This Friday night Room 84 will be hosting a fundraiser for victims of the 300 Washington Street. The Facebook page for the event shows hundreds plan on attending that evening and the Hoboken Rotary Club is accepting online donations.
With the size of the event growing, items for raffle or in a silent auction would be greatly appreciated such as theater, concert, sporting event tickets and gift baskets, etc.
Of the 17 fire victims displaced by the fire, 9 lost everything having no insurance.
Talking Ed Note: In the last few years, there have been several fires in Hoboken. Each left people in unfortunate outcomes where they had no insurance.
An insurance policy in addition to fire may also cover robbery, weather and liability.
Typically a renter’s policy is anywhere from $200 – 300, less than a dollar a day, depending on the amount of coverage. State Farm on lower Washington Street can provide you a quote for coverage right over the phone and have a policy made effective the same day.
