Yesterday morning, (Monday) the three-story Sunview Apartment complex in Raymond was engulfed in flames, according to Seacoast Current.  The fire, unfortunately, displaced some families.  The fire has taken everything they had.  In some cases, pets did not make it out.  The building is a total loss.

There are many GoFundMe campaigns that have been started for individual families.  Here are a few that are currently listed:

Jeff Curley and his fiance Shannon

.... sadly their cats we unable to make it to safety.

Lindsay Saunders and Dan Murphy

They lost everything they owned including their pets, clothes, even car keys in the escape.

Kaitlyn McGaffigan

Kaitlyn was lucky to notice the flames and get out with only her purse and the clothes on her back but she lost everything else, with nothing to be recovered Kaitlyn is truly on her own.

One of the posts in the GoFundMe stated that NH is in a housing shortage as it is, so just finding a new permanent place is going to be difficult as it is.

I spoke with Denise O'Grady with the Town of Raymond who said what they need the most is "an apartment."  She is taking donations at the Town Hall in Raymond and you can reach her at (603) 895-7036.

The Tuckaway Tavern, just up the road from the apartment complex jumped in to help, but these people are just starting to rebuild their lives.

Erin LaSorsa organized a GoFundMe for all of the families who need to rebuild.  You can check out her GoFundMe here.  

Anything you can do or give would be much appreciated.
