Generosity has been showing up in the form of donations for a family who lost everything in a fire

East Cleveland firefighters started it all by sending out a plea for help for a family who lost everything in a fire. That spirit of generosity has now snowballed into incredible support when they needed it most.

Compassion has been showing up at our front door at Channel 3 for a week, in the form of donations. And on that snowy Friday last week, a story we never saw coming showed up as well.

Last Wednesday, the Perkins family’s home and everything they owned went up in smoke.

Jamera and Alfred and their 3 kids weren’t home at the time.

Alive and grateful, but with nothing besides the clothes on their backs. Then, this social media plea from East Cleveland fire fighters came AFTER they put the fire out.
