We would welcome any support from the community.”

The following items were being collected:

— girls size 1 or 2 shoes

— boys size 6 shirts and 6x pants

— boys size 1 or 2 shoes

— women’s 3x tops and stretchy 3x pants

Sischo said clothing items could be dropped off by Friday at the main office of Fletcher Elementary School, 301 Cole Ave.

“We are grateful to the community for their support,” Sischo said.

Jamestown firefighters were called to the family’s south side home the afternoon of Feb. 9 for a reported grease fire. Crews encountered heavy smoke and fire at the rear of the property.

In a news release, the Jamestown Fire Department said the family was assisted by the Red Cross.
