Framingham Rallies Around Family That Lost Home In Fire
FRAMINGHAM (CBS) — After a devastating fire tore through the home of the Park family, their community is rallying around them to help.
Fire broke out at the Stanley Drive home on November 30.
Now, with the support of the Board of Selectmen, restaurants have come together to offer fundraising nights for the family.
“On November 30th, the Park family’s house caught fire and thankfully, the members of the family were able to exit the house safely. They then spent the next few hours watching as their home for over 20 years, where they raised 4 sons, burned, and all their possessions including a car, were destroyed,” the fundraising page says.
So far, a Go Fund Me page set up for the family has raised more than $8,000. The goal is to raise $50,000 to help them restart their lives.
Participating restaurants started holding fundraising nights last week. This week, several others will participate.
Sunday, January 12 and Friday, January 17: Postern Grille, 20-percent of food sales after 11:30 a.m. will be donated.
Tuesday, January 14: UNO Pizzeria & Grill, 70 Worcester Road, Framingham. 15-20% of food sales (based on sales) will be donated. Patrons must bring a coupon to the restaurants to have the sales donated. Coupons will be made available on thetown website.
