Belmont Corner Neighborhood Association: Fire Victims in Belmont, MA in Need of Help

Belmont Corner Neighborhood Association Seeks Support for Their Neighbors

BELMONT, Mass.--()--A fire has displaced the residents of a three-family home in Belmont Corner. The damage is extensive and virtually all belongings are lost. “We are asking for help to aid these residents in getting back on their feet,” says Daniel Parmer of the Belmont Corner Neighborhood Association (BCNA).

In the early morning hours of Wednesday, May 21, 2014, nine residents of 58 Marlboro Street in Belmont, MA, fled from their burning three-family home with little to no possessions. While all are safe and healthy, they are in urgent need of financial help to help build their lives back together. All of their personal vehicles and possessions were destroyed in the fire. The renters in the home are young professionals without insurance.

BCNA has established a fund to raise donations that will equitably split 100% of the donations amongst the fire victims. The BCNA is pleading for the public’s help in raising financial capital for these families. The BCNA is also hosting a marketplace-yard sale on Saturday, May 31, 2014, with all proceeds going to the fund.

  • Any and all donations are most graciously accepted by visiting http://ow.ly/x6urt.
  • If you have the housing or the means to donate vehicles or furniture, please email the BCNA at belmontcorner@gmail.com.
  • Please join us on Marlboro Street in Belmont on Saturday, May 31st for a marketplace-yard sale.
