Donations Come In For Displaced Waterford Family

The Waterford Youth Services Bureau already had many people donate to help the Adams family, who have been displaced by a fire.

After her rented house burnt down Friday afternoon, Jen Adams was in tears. She had no renter’s insurance and had no idea how she was going to get her life back together.

Patch interviewed her, and said often the community - especially the Waterford community - comes together when things like this happen. Patch was right.

On Sunday, the Waterford Youth Services Bureau opened from noon to 4 p.m. to accept donations for the Adams family. About twenty people came in to give items, and many more called asking what the family needs, Waterford Youth Services Director Dani Gorman said.

The bureau took in clothes and baby items, as well as $140 in donations. Also, people committed to donating larger items as well, including a dishwasher, an oven and a pull-out sofa.

The Waterford Youth Services Bureau will be accepting donations for the family from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday this week. The family consists of a husband and wife, a 17-year-old girl, a 12-year-old girl and a 8-month-old boy.
