A fire in Sherrard Wednesday has brought a community together looking for ways to help.
Just today, Spellious Tae Kwon Do announced they will host a fund raiser for the Harker family, who lost two girls in the Sherrard fire. The event is next Sunday at the Bethel Wesley United Methodist Church in Moline.
There will be a silent auction, raffle and bake sale from 4 p.m. - 8 p.m.
You can also donate to the Viager Family and Harker Family Fund by making a donation to the 1st Community Bank in Sherrard.
Donations can be mailed to following address:
1st Community Bank
P.O. Box 455
Sherrard, IL 61281
As always, our local Red Cross is there to help the families of those affected by fire, like the tragedy in Sherrard.
The organization provides the basics like clothing, food and shelter. But workers also help victims get through difficult times by offering mental health support. But they can't do it alone.
The Red Cross relies on the generosity of the community to help those in need.
"We're meeting those physical needs but then beyond that we also help with meeting the mental health needs, we have trained volunteer mental health counselors that work with us," Betsy Pratt, Regional Chapter Executive, Red Cross.
The Red Cross of the Quad Cities area has already helped more fire victims this year than in the recent past. Organizers say any donation folks can give would be much appreciated.
