We in social media agency wants to help the victims of fire. We just want to make a banner through social media marketing online that they need some donation as well as temporary shelter.

Jack Davis:

Some could mention Operation Suitcase to the family. It is located in the shop at the tower off Main street and is open tomorrow (Wednesday) from 7:00 to 9:00.


Larry and Raul could also put Donation information out on the Towns hotly watched Local Cable Talk show 3 On 11., on Wednesday night @ 8:00PM?


I don't know yet. Something I will look into today.


In the past I know the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, and other local Charity's and local Banks and Businesses have helped people that have been displaced by Fire's and other Emergency situations.

If its possible maybe the local Cable Channel could put something on its local Bulletin Board Channel on how to help or complete donation information?


Are there any donations or Clothes being collected?
