Cherry Place Fire - GoFundMe to help support Franklin family

Updated: Sep 5, 2021

Dear Franklin families,

As many of you know, there was a terrible roof fire on Cherry Place on July 5th, 2021, that affected one of our very own Franklin families. The Fuerte Family have three children at our school (Sebastian in Kindergarten, Sofia in 2nd, and Gabriela in 5th) and they live in the apartment at that house. Thankfully, no one was hurt, but due to smoke & water damage, they have lost almost all of their belongings. Thank you so much to everyone who was able to donate and support them immediately after the fire. That was incredibly helpful, but the family still needs support! They would love to be able to find an apartment to sublet for their family while their original apartment is being worked on to get to a functional state. The money raised would help with rent for the months before they can move back to their original home, as well as to buy furniture and necessities when they do have their place since they lost almost everything in the fire. The Fuerte Family will directly receive the funds donated here, and the Franklin Elementary PTO is setting up the GoFundMe on their behalf..
