Neighbor leads effort to help family after fire

An effort is under way to help a Stuarts Draft family left homeless after a house fire on Sunday.

Trent and Marie Showalter lost everything in the fire and did not have homeowners insurance. The family of six, including four children ages 15-22, are staying with neighbors Frank and Michelle Annese, who are leading the drive to get the Showalters back on their feet.

“Everything to fit into a house is greatly needed,” said Michelle Annese.

The list of items being sought:

Kitchen supplies: pots, pans, bakeware, baking pans, canning supplies, stock pots, utensils, dish towels

Furniture: dressers, bed frames, mattresses, sheet sets, sofa, chairs, bookcases, kitchen chairs (have a table donated already) desks

Building supplies: windows, doors, flooring, bathroom fixtures, sinks, tub, kitchen cabinets, lighting

Any gift cards or cash donations for the rebuild are greatly appreciated.

To help, contact Michelle Annese at michelleannese@gmail.com.
