iCARE Collecting Items For Colonie Fire Victims
On March2, a couple Colonie families were affected by a tragic fire that consumed their home and all of their belongings. We are doing what we can to provide support from the Raider Trader Closet, but again this is a total loss scenario.
The American Red Cross is stepping up to help but nothing reflects the values of Colonie then rallied community support. If there is anything you can do to support these families, I'm sure it would mean the world to both the parents and children.
As of now we can ascertain the essential needs to be:
Female size XL Sweaters, Shirts, Jackets
Female size 13 Pants
Female size 10 Shoes
Female size Medium Sweaters, Shirts, Jackets
Female Toiletry/Hygiene Items
Gift cards for clothes/toiletries/food (Wal-Mart, Target, Price Chopper, Hannaford)
Men's Medium shirts, Sweatshirts, Jackets
Men's 30x32 pants/jeans
Men's Size 8 sneakers
Female size medium shirts/sweaters/jackets
Female size 8 pants/jeans
Size 7 female shoe
Male & Female Toiletry/Hygiene items
Gift cards for food/toiletries/clothes & gas (their car is intact)
Donations can be brought to the Colonie Central High School Main Office, Senior Office or Counselor Kerri Audino's office. The iCARE kids will collect and sort as needed. Anything you can do will make a huge difference in their lives. This certainly is a tragedy no family should have to suffer through alone.
