Help Pat McKenna start again

My brother's apartment caught fire in the early hours yesterday morning and the building was so badly damaged it had to be demolished. He and his roommate were lucky to safely leave the building, but they had no idea that they would not be allowed to go back inside to get any belongings. He has lost all of his possessions including things like his car keys, computer, clothing, items from our parents, etc. He left with only his phone and the clothes on his back. He is currently staying with our other brother for the time being and his employer has offered a space in their new housing complex, but he is actively looking for a new apartment with his roommate in the Fall River area. If you have any friends or family in the Boston area who might know of some decent 2BR apartment complexes in the Fall River area please let me know!

As you can imagine he is going to need quite a few items like bedding, clothing, towels, a computer for his college courses, toiletries, kitchen supplies, etc. If any of you are doing any house cleaning and have some extra things to spare this season please let me know.  Gift cards (Amazon, Wal-Mart, CVS, etc), are also welcome!
