Holiday Wish Helps Family Who’s Roof Collapsed During Snow Storm
This season, Fun 107 teamed up with the United Way of Greater New Bedford to help bring a bit of light to Southcoast families who've had a trying year this year.
Our latest submission came in from the New Bedford Family Resource and Development office. During the historic winter storms earlier this year, a single mother's roof collapsed, completely destroying her 7 year old son's bedroom along with the living room.
Last year during the winter storm, the client lost everything. The roof in her apartment collapsed and everything was destroyed in the living room, kitchen and son's room. ... She is now living with two sons, ages 7 and 4 months old in these conditions.
While the family is in need of even the most basic of items like a bureau for the children's clothes, the mom was hoping to at least find a way to get a living room set so her family had a place to spend time together.
On top of a monetary donation from Enos Medical Supply, George from Saber TV in Fall River donated a new television to the family. If this winter is anything like the last, there will be a lot of time spent indoors and a TV will help make the time go by faster.
If you'd like to help the family with any additional needs, the 7 year old boy is interested in any games or toys about math. His clothing size is 7. The 4 month old boy is currently in in clothing sized 6 months.
Drop-offs are being accepted at the Fun107 Studios at 22 Sconticut Neck Road, Fairhaven, MA. Checks can be made out to the United Way of Greater New Bedford with "Living Room" in the memo.
