Stonebridge Apartment Complex up in flames- 2 Alarm

The Stonebridge Apartments are up in flames.  It's an enormous fire with assistance being called in from Jackson and Allenton Fire Departments.  We know a family that lives in the complex.  They were able to escape unharmed and believe all have evacuated safely.  The building is a total loss.  Channel 12 and 6 helicopters are hovering and it can be seen on the news at 5.

Our prayers are with them.

Update:  Over 20 families lived on the second floor, which has been leveled by fire.  Most of the families had small children.  The Red Cross is on the scene.  Consider gathering items that could be used by families with young children, including clothing and toiletries, to be prepared to donate to these families in need.  I'll post a drop location once one is announced.

Ginny, Please let me know when you find the drop site. I had just packed up the kids' clothes that don't fit, and I have about 30 pair of jeans (no holes!), dozens of shirts, pajamas, and a few Easter dresses and dress shirts. I'm ready to take them wherever they are needed.

What about non perishable food items?
