Help for Fremont Family Recover from Fire Loss Updates

Two of our students (a senior at American High, an 8th grader at Thornton Jr. High) and their family have lost their home and everything including 2 dogs and 2 cars in a fire recently! They need our help!

Update:

After much house-searching, the Family has finally found an apartment that works for them in the short run. Compassion Network has collected over $500 for them, and part of the money has been applied to extend their hotel stay. Tri-City Volunteers has collected clothing and other household articles for the Family and will continue to collect donation items for them. Their Case Manager has been working with the Family diligently to help them through the process. Two cars have been offered to the Family. CBC (Citizens for Better Community) and SBCC (South Bay Chinese Community) have collected more than $700 donation from their members. Even though it has been very tough for the Family in the past few weeks, we are very thankful, not only because they are finally settling down, but also because we see care and kindness in action in our City! Please continue to remember this family in your prayer and thoughts, and offer them support as you feel moved to do so.
