The following items are urgently needed to help this family back on their feet:

  • One Stroller
  • Cookware: pots and pans

It happened early Sunday morning on Buffalo’s West Side when a house fire next door spread to their home, rendering it inhabitable with an estimated $70,000 in damages. The five-member family arrived from Colombia and includes three children ages two to fourteen, including one with special needs. Unfortunately, they lost all of their belongings in the fire.
