How You Can Help the Family of Kevin and Brenda Tanski

A Tanski Children's Trust has been established to help the four children of Kevin and Brenda Tanski, who were hit and killed by a car following the snowstorm.


A Trust has been set up to allow those in the Milford community to help Kevin and Brenda Tanski, Jeremy Puckett of Milford, Kevin M. Tanski Jr. of New Haven, Jenny Tanski of Milford and Courtney Tanski of Milford.

Kevin and Brenda, husband and wife, were hit and killed by a motor vehicle following the recent snow storm in Milford. According to Milford Police, Kevin and Brenda were walking with two of their children in the street on Bridgeport Avenue because the sidewalks were covered with snow.

Kevin and Brenda's daughter, Jenny Tanski, was released from the hospital early last week. 

Gary Johnson, of the United Way of Milford, says his office has received numerous calls from residents since the accident, wanting to know how they could help, according to News 12 Connecticut.

Below is the address for the children's trust:

The Tanski Children's Trust, 162 Lee Street, West Haven, CT 06516

The wake for Kevin and Brenda Tanski is Thursday, the funeral is Friday.

C.S. The United Way has been in the forefront with many tragedies over the years and they have a policy that 100% of the funds collected will go directly to the specific fund-in this case the Tanski Fund and they DO NOT assess or charge any fees what so ever.
