The fire on Branch Street in Lowell this week was the worst our state has seen in over a decade. Seven died, including three children, and more than 50 were displaced, losing their homes and everything in them. In reaction to the devastating losses, LAER Realty Partners is stepping in to offer support by offering donations to the families through Cambodian Mutual Assistance Association and by offering complimentary relocation services to those displaced.
“The outpouring of support has been amazing,” says Stacey Alcorn, co-owner of LAER. “We have had real estate agents from across the state reach out offering support.”
Here’s how you too can support the families.
1. Stop by any LAER office between now and Wednesday, July 16th, and donate clothing, household goods, toys, or anything that the families can use in rebuilding their homes.
2. If you have a home or apartment in the Merrimack Valley area which you are interested in renting out to one of the families please reach out to a LAER agent so that we may add your property to the list of those available for lease. LAER Realty is offering complimentary relocation services to the families that have been displaced.
3. Make donations to the families through the Cambodian Mutual Assistance Association GoFundMe page for the Branch Street fire victims.
There will be a memorial service for the families at Glory Buddhist Temple in Lowell on Sunday, July 13th at 5:30 pm.
