Many of you are aware of the tragic fire that took place in our neighboring Town of Dover on this past Monday. Six businesses were destroyed and 80 families were displaced. Immediately following the fire, donations began to be made for those who were displaced from their homes. Through an amazing outpouring of support of the community, we have been made aware that the donations in the form of clothing are no longer needed. Instead, the Red Cross is asking that anyone still interested in making a donation to please provide gift cards, or make a donation to the “Dover, NJ Fire Relief Fund Gofundme page set up by the Dover Rotary Club.
It is asked that the Gift Cards be in denominations of $20-25 and be local stores (Walmart, Target, Sears, etc.) OR a Visa/MasterCard Gift Card. Gift Cards may be brought to the Dover Community Center, located at 37 N. Essex Street between the hours of 9 AM and 8 PM.
Should you prefer to make an online donation to the Gofundme account, you may access it through the link provided below.
If you would still prefer physical donations over monetary, it is recommended that all clothing be donated to the Salvation Army and any donations in the form of furniture be donated to Habitat for Humanity.
Thank you all for your generous support and donations to those affected by this horrible incident.
