The family of a 4-year-old killed in a fire last week are not only mourning the loss of a loved one, but facing the challenge of rebuilding their life after they lost everything they owned in the fire.
The 6th Avenue blaze, at the home of Jessica Barnhill, claimed the life of her son, Dylan, and family and friends, as well as those that did not personally know the family, remain in mourning over the loss.
Cathy Coley, owner of Coley Petals &Parties, is a family friend and has offered her store as a drop off site for clothing and household items for the family.
Items needed include:
Coley also said that the family is in need of kitchen items and any other household items.
An account for monetary donations will be set up at First National Bank &Trust later this week.
