The 4-alarm fire at Avalon Oaks on Feb. 8 made headlines and sent plumes of smoke into the sky that could be seen for miles.
But almost two weeks later, as the buzz surrounding the fire has faded, the 36 people made homeless by the blaze must still deal with the aftermath.
A Facebook Page -- www.facebook.com/FebruaryBlizzardFireVictims -- has been started to gather resources to try and help the families impacted.
The page was started by Barbara Warren-Sica but has quickly developed into a clearinghouse, of sorts, for various resources, suggestions and ideas.
One effort being featured on the page is a fund for the fire victims that has been set up at the Reading Co-Operative Bank. Those wishing to donate can send contributions to:
Reading Co-Operative Bank
Attn: Donations for the February Fire Blizzard Victims
352 Middlesex Avenue
Wilmington, MA 01887
There is also a link to an online need/wish list for the fire victims that has also been established, as well as a tool residents can use to purchase gift cards to donate.
If you wish to help with the efforts or merely want to share your well-wishes and prayers, go to www.facebook.com/FebruaryBlizzardFireVictims.
