Help a Concordia family who lost everything!

June 11, 2010 by

When a Concordia home was destroyed by fire early on the morning of June 4, the Ramirez family lost everything they owned.

Now the community is rallying to replace household items and clothing to help Emanuel and Katrina Ramirez, their two young daughters and Emanuel’s brother Javier rebuild their lives.

Donations are being collected through the Catholic Thrift Shop at 107 E. Sixth St. and held in a storage unit donated by the Concordia Homestore.  Items may be delivered during regular business hours, including Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Donors are asked to let the Thrift Shop staff to let them know the items are for the Ramirez family.

Items needed include household furnishings, beds, kitchen table and chairs, dressers, sofa, chairs, lamps, radio, TV, appliances, kitchen dishes, pots and pans, silverware, glasses/cups, cooking utensils, bedding, linens, towels, children’s items and toys, plus clothing (for 1½- and 3-year-old girls, and in sizes women’s 2x and 3x, men’s S and M shirts, 32/34 pants).

Anyone who wants to make a donation of cash or gift cards or who has questions is asked to contact Sister Judy Stephens at 243-2149, ext. 21, or (785) 614-4167, or Kim Krull at 243-1435, ext. 249, or  (785) 614-2782.
