Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer recently delivered a donation of over 3,000 items to victims of the fatal fire that claimed one life, injured five others and ravaged three homes on 61st Street in Woodside on November 18.

The contributions, which were made by residents of the surrounding community, included diapers, food, cleaning products, clothing and toys. The items were distributed to the three families forced from their homes by the fire on December 22 at the councilmember’s district office. Local Pastor Daniel Gilland and representatives from the Red Cross were also on hand to aid with the donation.

“In the wake of this tragic event, it is heartwarming to see the community’s response to support their neighbors,” said Van Bramer. “The response was more than we could have ever hoped for and I sincerely thank everyone for their tremendous efforts. During this holiday season, these donations will give a little hope back to the families who lost so much in the fire.”
