Helping The Families Displaced By Wednesday’s Fire

Wednesday’s house fire on Rawson Avenue has greatly impacted two families, with six children attending South Milwaukee schools. Two community institutions are stepping up to help.

Guardian Credit Union has announced they have created a fund to assist the families and will be accepting donations of money, clothing and household goods at their South Milwaukee location, 1025 Milwaukee Ave. Reference the “South Milwaukee Rawson House Fire” fund.

In addition, Guardian accepted nearly $140 in donations from attendees of Thursday’s showing of “Frozen” at the South Milwaukee Downtown Market — donations that the market and Guardian then matched for a total donation of more than $400. Thanks to everyone who pitched in!

Also, Rawson Elementary is collecting clothing for boys size 5 and girls size 7/8.

    Hi there, I am a Girl Scout leader of troop 8685 and 3503 of West Allis Jefferson elementey. We need your help. We are trying to get in contact with the families of the fire Wenesday. We are wanting to put together a fundraiser for them at Yo Mamas where they will donate 30% of there sales to the families. We have handfuls of volunteers in West Allis that are will to help us out with this mission. If you at all have any helpful info or could pass my information down to them I would greatly appreciate it.

    • Rebecca: Thanks for your interest in helping out. I’d contact the principal at Rawson Elementary, where at least a couple of the kids attend. Colin Jacobs can be reached at 414-766-2904.
