A Patchogue mom who works at Roast Coffee and Tea Trading Company needs support from the community after recently suffering a stroke.

Desiree Vermeulen, an assistant manager at the 41 E. Main St. coffeehouse, is going to be out of work during her recovery. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help her support herself and daughter during this time.
