House Fire Destroys FF’s Belongings

My name is Ryan Daughton and I am the President of the East Franklin Fire Department. On December 12th, 2017 we faced a first time incident we never expected and that was responding to one of our own Firefighters Homes that had caught fire at 109 Highland Avenue in Somerset, NJ. FF Jhon Lopez did everything he could to hold the fire before Station 25 and 27 responded, but he was unable to stop the blaze from destroying his garage and much of his belongings. We are asking if you can give anything towards our fundraising efforts to help him get some of the tools back he needs to work and provide for his family, we would highly appreciate it. Jhon lost most of his tools that he uses to do contracting work and he is unable to provide for his family without them, we need your help in helping him! Give something back to those who serve the community in their time of need, thank you.
