MORRISTOWN, NJ - The fire that ripped through Elm Street on Friday night, forced people to flee from their homes. Although there were no injuries reported, residents were left with nothing. There are several ways the community can help the victims of this tragedy.
The Town of Morristown has set up the "Elm Street Fire Victims Fund" to assist those families in recovering. Material and non-perishable donations can be dropped off at the Morristown Fire Bureau located at 161 Speedwell Avenue. Financial donations can be made via check or money order made out to the Town of Morristown, and mailed or delivered to the Mayor and Administration office located at the Morristown Town Hall, 200 South Street, Morristown.
The Home School Associations from Normandy Park School and Woodland School, both schools in the Morris School District, are taking up a collection to support two families within their schools that were displaced from the fire. Gift cards to local grocery stores and Walmart are being collected and can be sent directly to the school in an envelope marked "Fire Victim Relief". Go-Fund Me accounts have been set up for each family as well. To make a monetary donation to help these families rebuild, visit http://www.gofundme.com/l7fahs to help the family at Normandy Park School or http://www.gofundme.com/l8mxls. to help the family at Woodland School.
