Fire marshals are still investigating a fire that took place at the Green River Apartments early Saturday morning. 

But thanks to an outpouring of community support, the families who once lived there are getting a helping hand.

Along with the American Red Cross, several churches and businesses have teamed up to collect donations for the victims. Everything from clothes to furniture, as well as hygiene and cleaning supplies. All of the items will go straight to the families. 

 

"We have a wonderful community. Been pastoring here for 14 years and I have just always seen them rally around one another and come together to support whatever the need might be," said Richard Sams, the pastor at Calhoun Baptist Church.

Families effected by the fire are grateful for this outstanding community support.  

"The community around here has been so great about helping everybody. We didn't have no idea what we were going to do," said Charles Stoval, a resident at Green River Apartment.

Donations are still being excepted if you would like to donate. Some community members have also created a Facebook group. If you have a question about how to donate, click here.
