Donation Drive- Fall River, MA 02724
As a community, we help each other out. Whether it be lending sugar to our neighbor or giving the elderly woman downstairs a ride to her doctor’s appointment. When disaster strikes however, that’s when it seems that we really come together! Recently there was a large apartment complex fire that occurred in Fall River. Over 80 people were displaced and had nothing but the clothes on their backs. With no building left to rebuild, there wasn’t much for us here at SERVPRO of Fall River to do. We wanted to still lend a hand, so we decided that we would offer our location as a donation drop off site.
Only two days into doing so, we had such an outpouring of support! A large number of items were brought to us that the displaced families were in desperate need of. Families, businesses and organizations alike donated items such as toiletries, toys, diapers, gift cards, clothing and much more. They were thinking about what it is that they use in their everyday routine, and were dropping them off by the car and truck full! It was a beautiful sight and a great feeling to see that the community was coming together to help.
As the need continues, we are still receiving calls and emails on how people can help. SERVPRO of Fall River, many other businesses, yes the community as a whole is making sure that these victims are not going through this alone. May we all continue to do our part to make sure the victims of this tragedy see a light at the end of the tunnel and may they have comfort in knowing that we are all here to help them in their time of need.
