Brooklyn Fire—Mom & daughter lost everything

One of my coworkers, Jade Newby, a public servant, & her 11 year old daughter woke up last night to find their Brooklyn apartment engulfed in flames & smoke. They ran outside without even coats! Thankfully are ok. This fire was in the news-the buildings were destroyed. The Red Cross put them in a hotel for a few days, but they have lost everything—during COVID. Since they are in the hotel with no current apartment to return to, cash or gift cards are best for now. If you know a realtor who can help them find a place let me know.
