Alshami House Fire in Rensselaer,NY

The Alshami family suffered devastating losses this morning, with 3 family members losing their lives. One of them just a small child. We understand that one child has been sent to Syracuse due to significant burns, and yet another child has suffered injuries from jumping out of the second floor window to escape. The father of the family was at work, and now has to manage caring for his children, travel to and from Syracuse, and the loss of his wife, mother and son. How can we help? Your donations will help him be able to get to and from Syracuse, buy new clothes and food. We are asking for your help in this time of suffering and need, and appreciate even the smallest donations.
