Help Mount Dennis House Fire Victims (43 Lambton)

$10,575 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 182 people in 25 days
Hello Toronto, 

We are Black Creek Alliance, a local community improvement group in Mount Dennis and we are raising money with the Mount Dennis and Rockcliffe-Smythe community for the victims of the 3 alarm house fire at 43 Lambton Ave this past Saturday night. Luckily, everyone made it out of the house safely. The Kis/Dinai family are 3 families that make up a large extended family of 14. All together there are eight children and six adults that have been displaced.  The house and everything in it that belonged to them is gone. The money raised here will be used to  help them with food, clothing, supplies and future housing.

Thank you for your help and consideration. Please share.
