Southwest Family Needs Our Help After Disaster

Thanks to my good friend Trevor Hemingway at The Local Weekly, I present the following information. I hope you will take the necessary steps to help this family in any way you can. - Brian

On a regular Tuesday afternoon, Melissa Peguero called home to check on her kids after they arrived home from school. Ten minutes after calling home, Melissa received a frantic call from her son about a fire in the garage. Melissa's son phoned 911 before calling his mom but their home and belongings could not be saved. Two of Melissa's children were at home when the fire began and escaped before the hot water heater exploded and spread the fire through the house. The home was devastated and the Peguero family has lost everything in the fire. They now need the Southwest's help. The children need clothes, school supplies, toys, blankets, socks, shoes, and coats. Mr. and Mrs. Peguero need work clothes, shoes, and household items. Melissa's co-workers have started a fund at River City Bank on Greenwood Road. If you would like to donate any items or money please stop by the bank and they will help you help the Pegueros. You can also take donations to Louisville Physicians for Women at 4121 Dutchmans lane Ste. 101, in Medical Plaza 3 at Norton Suburban Hospital. Contact Jennifer Rogers at 502-876-8035 or at the LPFW office at 502-897-2531 option 2 and ask for Jennifer. If you would like to send a prayer or just a letter of encouragement to Melissa and Family please mail to the doctor's office or drop it off in the waiting room. Pray for the Peguero Family: Melvin, Melissa, MJ, Tori and Maria.

Let's take this opportunity to show the goodwill of the citizens of Southwest Louisville.
