Wishing Well Fire

Wishing Well Houses Fire

Dear Friends,

In the afternoon of Sunday, May 16, 2021, a very tragic and heart-wrenching incident took place in Scarborough Agincourt’s Wishing Well Drive. A devastating fire consumed two houses. Four of our neighbours were left homeless and in dire need of help and support during this difficult time. 

One of the families had moved to one of the burnt houses just two hours before the fire started.  I have witnessed the shock and trauma on the faces of the mother and daughter who just became our neighbours. A lady in another family had to be carried to the hospital and treated for burns on her arm. The heroic efforts of our firefighters and police officers saved our neighborhood from a much bigger catastrophe and the spread of the fire to adjacent homes.   

These families lost everything. They have to start their lives all over again. These devastated families need our solidarity and help. They need temporary shelters, medical care, accommodations, clothing, food, and other life necessities.   

Therefore, I kindly ask you to donate to the GoFundMe campaign to raise money in support of the families affected by this tragedy. I am confident that the generous and compassionate people of Scarborough-Agincourt, Ontario, and Canada will stand by the four families and assist them to overcome these challenging times. After all, helping our fellow citizens is a Canadian tradition.

Your generous donation is much appreciated and will give hope to the four families and allow them to feel that they are not alone.  In Canada, we will always come to the aid of our vulnerable and needy.

On behalf of our residents, I would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to you, the Toronto Fire Service team and Toronto Police Service 42 Division officers for their prompt and diligent response to save lives.  

The raised fund will be distributed equally among the four families.
