Anyone interested in making donations of household goods, clothing, money or other items to assist fire victim Charlotte Turner is being asked to call cell number 335-1382 to arrange for dropoff or pickup.
Ms. Turner’s residence at 919 East Vine St. in Union City was heavily damaged in a fire that broke out shortly before 11 p.m. Friday.
Police reported the fire was suspicious in nature and it was still under investigation today. Ms. Turner’s residence was also burglarized one day recently and the tires on her vehicle were slashed another day.
Union City police investigator Chris Cummings said Ms. Turner and a 5-year-old boy she is raising were displaced and lost virtually everything in the fire. He started the effort to collect donations to help them and is asking anyone interested to call the cell number.
