Help needed for Somers Fire victims.

Hello, we want to update everyone on the house fire in Somers this past week that destroyed everything the young family owned. Both Katie Colgan and Kerra are doing better than they were but the family was left with nothing. If you are able to donate to them they are all in need of clothing, groceries and all of the basic needs. This family is also looking for a new place to rent in Somers ct if anyone knows of an apartment please let us know. Gift cards in any amount are greatly appreciated and highly suggested to places like Wal mart, grocery stores or places of that nature to help them with clothing and such. A donation drop off location has been set up at the Somers fire station in town Monday thru Friday 8 am to 6 pm. Thankyou so much to everyone helping. Kerra who is 7 asked Santa yesterday for "a home to live in" which broke our hearts. I know everyone struggles this time of year and it's hard but please help this family get back on their feet in any way you can. Happy Holidays.
