Coworker starts fundraiser for Portsmouth fire victims
PORTSMOUTH, R.I. — A coworker of Jim Weaver, who lost his Portsmouth home due to a fire Sunday at Sunny Acres, has started a GoFundMe fundraiser for Weaver and his family.
On Sunday morning, a mobile home in the Sunny Acres trailer park off Bristol Ferry Road was destroyed by fire. No injuries were reported. Two other homes were also heavily damaged.
Caroline Galotti of Needham Heights, Mass., a coworker for Weaver, has now started a GoFundMe fundraiser to support Weaver. As of Tuesday evening, the fundraiser reached $3,674 of a $50,000 goal.
From the GoFundMe page:
One of my co workers Jim Weaver lost his entire home on Sunday 1/7/18 due to a tragic house fire. He and his family and their two dogs made it out safely, but now he has not even the simplest of items that we take for granted every day. They lost everything–all clothes, food, cherishables, essentials etc. He didn’t have fire insurance, so he is starting from the ground up. Jim is a great guy, always up beat and is always up to help anybody out. Any donation is appreciated, great or small, thank you in advance!!
