Church seeks aid for house fire victims

Members of the Broadneck United Methodist Church and other Cape St. Claire residents are trying to help a family of six that was burned out of its home last month.

The family, which church members did not identify, also lost its belongings in the blaze, which leveled the house. Their insurance covered only their mortgage. It did not include the cost of repairs or replacing lost items.

To help the family -- a 6-month-old baby, a Cape St. Claire Elementary student, a Magothy River Middle School student and three adults -- an emergency savings account has been opened for donations at the Annapolis National Bank in the Cape St. Claire Shopping Center.

The family also needs women's clothing, sizes 16 and 22, linens, kitchen items, appliances, furniture, groceries and baby items.

A refrigerator, crib, stroller and mattresses already have been donated.

Only clothing and food items may be brought to the Cape St. Claire Elementary School on Blue Ridge Drive. Furniture and other donations may be dropped off on the porch of the old Broadneck United Methodist Church Parsonage at 221 Browns Woods Road in St. Margarets.

The church has set the family up in temporary housing for 60 days. Anyone with suggestions for affordable housing or questions should call 757-1168 and ask for Diane Fisher.
