Help Families Affected By Cherry St. Fire

As many of you know two Newton families have lost their homes due to a fire late last week.  These families (9 people in total) are in urgent need of our support.  Both families have children in Newton Public Schools at Franklin Elementary School, Day Middle School, and Newton North High School.  They will need funds for first and last month's rent on new apartments.  In addition, since both families lost nearly everything, they will need funds to purchase furniture, household items for kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms, clothing, shoes, and personal items.  Any size donation is welcome.

In addition, please share any leads on apartments here .
The families are seeking apartments with the following parameters:

1.  2 Bedroom Apartment, $1500-2000/month
2.  3 Bedroom Apartment, $1500-1800/month

A beneficiary account has been set up and the families will directly receive funds donated here.

Many thanks for your quick response and generosity.
