Emergency Assistance for Scarborough HS Family
Organized by: Lauren Weiner
A Scarborough High School family was affected by the devastating fire that took place in their apartment building on W. 43rd Street last night. They lost everything except for the clothes on their backs. The Red Cross was able to give them enough to stay in a motel for 2 nights and to buy some food. This family has a tough road ahead as they recover from this disaster and rebuild their lives. Please consider helping them if you can. The money raised through this website will go toward a deposit on a new apartment. Any additional funds will go toward replacing items in their house such as furniture, kitchen items, clothing, etc.
Update #1: The apartment complex is working on fixing up some units in another building for displaced families to move into. This will alleviate some of the financial burden of the family we are raising funds for, allowing all we raise to go towards replacing furniture, clothing, and other household items. Thank you for donating and please consider sharing this page with your community!
Update #2: We have been informed that another Scarborough High School family was affected by the fire. Funds raised through this website will be split between the two families.
Update #3: Thank you to all the donors for helping us meet our goal!!! Please keep sharing this link, all the money we raise goes straight to the families to replace everything they lost.
