Donations stall for Bristol couple’s “meth house” repairs

    It’s been awhile since we checked in with the “Our Meth House” site, where Jenn Friberg and Rob Quigley are trying to raise money to rid their Bristol home of meth. Since then, the donation counter on the site hasn’t moved.

     

    The couple bought the Bucks County home almost a year ago, not knowing the former owners ran a meth lab out of the house. Now, the couple needs $25,000 by the end of the this month.

    The effort was going at a nice clip, but recent checks on the site show the meter has stayed at $9,570 — not nearly enough to help the pair restore their home. Updates to the Facebook page show fundraising event in December was canceled, and meth cleaning company offered its services. There’s been no other activity on the page.

    We’ve reached out to the couple to see what kind of progress has been made. We’ll keep you posted.
