Chabad Waukesha’s McGeen assists evacuees 


Diane McGeen, who is part of the Chabad Waukesha faith community, has started a GoFundMe to help her mother and others who had to race out of a condominium building that was deemed unsafe and could fall down. 

On Dec. 2, 48 families were given 15 minutes’ notice to evacuate the six-story building, according to media reports. The building is unstable and needs to be demolished, according to McGeen, who is an administrative assistant for Rabbi Levi Brook.  

Families were given limited time to complete their evacuation and empty their homes, but now many are left scrambling for a place to live. McGeen said that these families received no financial assistance and are still responsible for a mortgage in the condominium and rent at their new residences. 

Funds gathered from the GoFundMe will be used to offset common expenses and legal fees and to compensate individual families for their financial losses. The link to donate is at this article.
