While the fire continues to rage, those in need are seeking your assistance.

What a tragedy this fire is and what enormous damage it has done in such a short period of time.

Your help is needed.  Cash or checks can be to be made out to the American Red Cross.

Other items needed include:  toothbrushes, toothpaste, towels, bedding,  ect.

School is starting soon and I am sure all of the brand new clothes have been burned up and school supplies too.  These would be a great items to consider donating!
