Fire Fund set up for area family following trailer fire
Area family needs your help.
On the morning of Good Friday, this Big Walnut family of six, a single Mom and five children, found themselves homeless due to a sudden tragic fire. In a matter of 12 minutes they lost everything!
This mother of five is currently working at a daycare facility on Sunbury Road and attending Franklin University, while caring for her five children, 21-month-old twins, a 6-year-old, an 11-year-old and a 14-year-old.
The first and most immediate need is housing. The children are currently in the Big Walnut School District and the first choice is to keep the children in that district. Second choice would be the Delaware City School district. Third choice would be another area. If anyone is aware of a three– to four-bedroom apartment or home for rent at a very reasonable rate, or know a realtor or contact with available rentals, please contact: < email@example.com .
Once the family has found suitable housing, its will then need furnishings and household goods. If you have items, please save them, or if they cannot be stored, they can be picked up. Use the same contact as above to let us know what you have and to make arrangements.
The family has received some clothing, but more will be needed. Please see the following sizes:
• 21-month-old twins: one boy, one girl – size 24-month; shoe size 6 ½ toddler;
• 6-year-old boy: size 7–8 (slim); shoe size 2;
• 11-year-old boy: 10–12 (slim); shoe size 6/7;
• 14 year old girl: 11/12 (wears skinny jeans, shorts and large shirts); shoe size 10 1/2; and
• Mom is size 18, long/tall; shoe size 10.
