Greater Sudbury is reaching out to help the families who lost their homes to a fire Friday in Copper Cliff.
"You feel for the people in the community," Trista Stafford said.
Stafford owns and operates Universal Towing with her husband, Chris Snow.
They are offering the use of their trucks to people in town to help deliver furniture and other items to the families of the fire.
"There are lots of people in town who want to help, but don't have the means to," she said.
"We're looking to offer the services of our trucks to pick up furni ture and others to donate."
An account is being set up by the Copper Cliff Credit Union for monetary donations. The contact name is Mimi Wiseman.
The St. Stanislaus Church in Copper Cliff, as of Tuesday morning, has no more room to store donations. If you have have furniture or large appliances, please contact the office at 682-4683.
Jason LaFauci of Omerta Records, a local electronic dance music label, offered to raise funds for the families with his international music artists.
They will sell CDs and all the proceeds will be going to the families in need.
Wal-Mart, at 2414 Long Lake Road, will be holding a barbecue and fundraiser event Thursday 1 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
