Single mom with 2 kids victim of fire

As we already heard in the news, the 27th of November, our very own Catherine Almanzor family lost their rental suite due to a fire in Northview St. Antigonish. The family escaped with only the clothes on them and unfortunately they have lost majority of their belongings in this heart breaking incident. Since there is no insurance to there belongings, we are seeking the communities help to raise some funds to assist this wonderful and hardworking family who are devastated with this loss. They are temporarily placed in Homeward Inn but only till Saturday and then will have to find proper accommodation. As they tirelessly search for a rental place and unable to attend their hourly jobs (hence no pay), it would be amazing if we could come up with some funds to help ease the burden of bills, cost of new belongings, rent etc. for this quiet and respectful family of 3. Please do not hesitate to reach out as it will be a much needed help in these dire times. We sincerely appreciate all your help and thank you in advance. Share
