DOVER — A community is rallying together in the wake of a harrowing fire that engulfed three residential properties on West Blackwell Street on Saturday, September 16, leaving them uninhabitable and forcing 75 people from sixteen families to abandon their homes. The properties at 71, 73, and 75 West Blackwell Street suffered extensive fire and smoke damage, leaving victims with minimal clothing, no food, no supplies, and no furniture.

The Dover community, known for its resilience and camaraderie, has been quick to respond. Many of the affected families have received short-term assistance from generous residents, dignitaries, local restaurants, Dover Rotary and Kiwanis Club of Greater Dover. However, the urgency to find permanent, safe housing persists as victims struggle with the immediate loss of their homes and belongings.

To consolidate support and provide a platform for wider community participation, the Dover Rotary has initiated a GoFundMe campaign. This campaign is a beacon of hope for the victims, aiming to offset the funds needed for them to secure new residences and restore normalcy to their lives. Every contribution, no matter how small, will directly impact the lives of those affected, providing them with the resources to rebuild.

The Dover Rotary urges all community members, businesses, and anyone willing to help, to contribute to this urgent cause. Donors can click here to make their contributions. The initiative offers a structured way for the community and benevolent individuals from around the region to come together and support the victims in their time of need.

The families left their homes with just the bare minimum and are in dire need of immediate and long-term support. As federal and local agencies work to address the calamity, the contributions from the GoFundMe page will serve as crucial aid for the displaced families, helping them find new places to live, secure essential supplies, and start the long process of rebuilding their lives.

Let us come together as a community to show our support and help our neighbors during this challenging time, ensuring that they do not face this crisis alone.
