“Fire” house in need of help with repairs

The home at 2949 14 Mile Road, in Algoma Township, has served as a temporary shelter since 2000 for families who have lost their home in a fire, and the owners are now asking the community for help with some repairs.

A joint effort between Cedar Creek Community Church, 2969 14 Mile Road, and a donation by a developing company made the house possible, and their partnership with the American Red Cross has resulted in a home away from home for many grieving families. “Families have use the home from just about every township in Kent and surrounding counties,” said Carol Nichols, secretary at Cedar Creek Community Church.

Currently the decking is being replaced, and, though the church has furnished all materials, labor is still needed. Work was started on June 5, and they hope to have it finished by this Saturday, June 19.

If you can help, please Carol Nichols at 866-9829 or Roger VanderKlipp at the Algoma Township Fire Department (866-1583).
