Basically, Robert Quarry, whom as you know has been very ill on and off for the last several years, was left with nothing. He lost the place he was living. He had no place to go and had to move into a, well, I can only say he was fortunate enough to be admitted into a "home". He has had to start again from scratch, needing even the most basic of things.
Help is starting to come in, but he still needs your help. Be there for Robert Quarry. Even if it is just a letter saying how much he and his films have meant to you, it is a good start a picking up his spirits. Sure, you can even send things for him to autograph, but send him a couple bucks too. Anything will be an improvement. There are some other things that will benefit him too, as are listed below.
The following is a message I recently received, I want you to know that I do have permission from the authors to repost it.

UPDATE FROM THE CRYPT OF QUARRY!

Yesterday I paid a visit to Robert Quarry to deliver all the goodies you guys have sent for his new Crypt. It was an amazing day, made even more so by the presence of none other than Hucklebilly himself, Ryan Fleming, and my tremendously kind and talented colleague, Joe Mo (producer and co-writer of RED VELVET which wowed everybody this past weekend at the Fango con). Joe wrote an amazing update to TEAM QUARRY this morning, so I figured I would "hand the microphone over" and let him take it from here. Bleeding Love………. Tim
A spectacular Sunday at Bob's! I left the RED VELVET booth at the Fango Con early to meet Tim Sullivan and Ryan Fleming (who plays Hucklebilly in Tim's 2001 MANIACS) at the Motion Picture Home. When I got there at 3PM , the guys had already stacked heaps of presents all over the room. Tim had taken the time to wrap each and every gift that wasn't already wrapped. It literally looked like Christmas in April with all the dozens and dozens of boxes big and small (many of which were CDs and DVDs from the movie studios and other loving and generous individuals).
Bob was ecstatic to see all the stuff. Tim had gone beyond the call of duty and put a copy of every single e-mail note he'd received from all of Bob's fans and contributors into bright, colorful envelopes which he then attached to each present. In addition to printing out these emails, Tim somehow found photos on My Space of everyone who wrote them so that Bob could associate the gift giver with the gift. (He also compiled a separate bound booklet of all these letters for Bob to be able to keep and peruse so that he can always remember just how loved he is.)
Bob opened letters and cards and was baffled whenever money fell out - as it often did. Some of the notes were read aloud and I got choked up hearing them on more than one occasion. Ryan passed each gift to Bob and Tim acted thrilled and surprised every time one was opened (even though he'd wrapped all of them).
My job was assembling the items that needed to be constructed (a gorgeous sofa, an entertainment center,CD/DVD tower). I had brand new 8X10 photos printed and Bob really loved them! I was touched when he took one with him to dinner to show it off. I knew then that he really did approve and would be happy to sign them and send them out as THANK YOU's to every one who was kind enough to contribute. Bob was so excited and energetic, but eventually his legs began to hurt, so for the rest of our visit we made him lie down and tell us where to put items and how to arrange things.
We straightened up and arranged furniture as best we could on this one visit, promising to return and bring more and do more later in the week. We left at around 8PM feeling very accomplished and proud of everyone in our amazing community of caring folk. I took pictures of the event which Tim uploaded to his site.

As much as Bob has received, because he is literally starting from scratch, there are still several very crucial items that he still requires. The registries are still up, so please, do all you can for Bob in this time of need.

Per Bob's direct request, he would prefer that his home address NOT be given out, and that all fan mail correspondence be sent to the following address:
C/O NEW REBELLION ENTERTAINMENT
1366 ½ RIVIERA AVENUE
VENICE, CA 90291
He WILL get back to everyone.
In fact, we thought it might be very cool to offer up this brand new photo I designed and had printed up our dear ol' guy...
Anyone who would like this bad boy personally signed by Bob should simply make out a check for $22.50 (postage included) to ROBERT QUARRY, and mail it to the above address as well.
Let it be known hence on that due to all that Bob has been through, anyone out there on the fan boards or the web speaking for Bob other than myself, Tim Sullivan or Kevin Shinnik is not authorized to do so and is speaking out of turn and WITHOUT Bob's permission.
Once again- Blessings to all who have been there with love and support for our dear, dear friend, Robert Quarry.
