Fundraising campaigns are running for two families that have recently lost everything to fires in their homes.
A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to a Huntington Station family of six who lost their home to a fire on Dec.4.
Kaila McCoy, her partner Caprice Crowell and their children ranging in age from 11 to 18 escaped the fire when the blaze, caused by an electrical problem in the bathroom, engulfed their home on Oakwood Road in Huntington Station.
“Everyone got out safely,” McCoy said. “I happened to be getting daughter from work and saw the fire. I grabbed the dog, and my husband and son tried to fight the fire but couldn’t” overcome it.
“We literally lost everything but our lives. Thank God!”
In Greenlawn, Greenlawn Delicatessen, known as Deli 51, has set up a fundraiser for the Sandro Romero family after a cooking pot fire destroyed their home on Thursday. Romero, his wife, and two sons, ages 4 and 12, need donations of money, clothing, presents and school supplies. Romero is an employee of the deli and a pastor.
“The Romero family needs our help. To think he and his family will be without a home or presents for the holidays in the midst of a pandemic is unfathomable,” the deli said on Facebook. Donations can be dropped off at the deli, 51 Broadway, Greenlawn or made through Facebook.
