McCatty Family

Tim McCatty passed away unexpectedly of a heart attack on April 3, 2018.  He was married to Susie Iaquinta McCatty for almost 25 years. This fund added in the education of his two sons, Nathan and Jake, also helping the family through this tough time.  Thomas Richards Charity also started and annual award in Tim’s name to help a high school senior go onto trade school.

Cory Ehler’s Children

Thomas Richards Charity was able to help the Ehlers children through a gofundme, Noodles Restaurant Fundraiser and an annual golf outing.

On Monday March 12, 2018 Cory Ann Ehlers’ life was taken by the man who promised to love her forever. This is a tragic loss to her four children, parents, siblings and to everyone she ever met. She was an active parent at Brooklands Elementary School in Rochester Hills and a long-time staff member at Camp Ticonderoga in Troy. She was an amazing mother, daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, friend and person. She sparkled.

Cory has 4 children, Joshua (23), Jonathon (14), Alyvia (9) and Nathan (8).
They are now without parents and have long rough road ahead. This is something that no child should ever have to deal with.

Thanksgiving Food Baskets

Today is another great day to be a part of Thomas Richards Charity 💙because of all the hard work and continued support of our community, we were able to deliver $1,000 of food for Thanksgiving baskets to those in need. We chose Lighthouse as our recipient. Such a rewarding experience, especially for me knowing my mom was a recipient in the past.
Thank you to all who continue to donate to TRC so we can give back to our community!

Briarwood Heating and Cooling

I want to tell you about two amazing people Lee Deel and Renee Deel, owners of Briarwood Heating & Cooling. Thomas Richards Charity was working with a family that needed help. They were living in their trailer using an electric heater to keep them and their 3 month old baby warm, since their furnace was broken. Lee installed a new furnace without batting an eye, while we worked with the state to help out. Unfortunately, the state wasn’t able to provide the funding. Again, Renee and Lee didn’t bat and eye, they covered the whole cost of the furnace and installation ($2500.00). That is what good people do when they see people in need. We are so lucky to have these two as a part of the Thomas Richards Charity community! This is not the first time they have helped people in need as they have been a sponsor of the Matt Moscato Charity Golf for years.
Thank you again
