GoFundMe Set Up for Yardley Family Who ‘Lost Everything’ in Fire
A GoFundMe campaign has been started for a Yardley family who "lost everything" when a fire broke out in their apartment on Thursday.
The GoFundMe campaign was set up by a neighbor who also lives in the Yardley Commons apartment complex. On the campaign's page, the organizers say that no one was hurt in the fire, but that the family is now homeless and "given the fire, smoke and water damage, they lost everything."
According to msn.com, firefighters were able to rescue the family's 2 dogs who were inside the apartment when the fire broke out.
Organizers say that "coming up with rent and a security deposit at a moment’s notice will be impossible without donations."
Yardley Commons is located off Main St. in Yardley.
As of this morning (3/9), 113 donations had been made and the $4,000 goal had already been reached. One of the organizers, Jennifer Lees, posted, "This continued generosity is above and beyond!!!"
