Neighborly help after a fire

Jake Duprey and Heather O'Bara tragically experienced a house fire on Christmas night this past winter. But their burden was lessened by the help from neighbors and nearby towns. $859.02 was collected to assist Duprey and O'Bara. Laurie Notvotny spearheaded this campaign and money was collected in donation jars at The Pittstop and the Pittsfield General Store. Pittsfield and Stockbridge, particularly, were noted for their help and donations.

In total over $28,000 was collected and used to purchase another mobile home as well as one year homeowners insurance policy, filled their propane tank and paid for the electrical hook up at Duprey and O'Bara's home site.
