Rep. Eric Watson said he is asking for help for a widow who lost her home in a fire.

He said, "A dear friend to the community, Vicki Lee lost her family home to a fire, in the wee hours of the morning, Sunday, July 27. Everyone got out safely, but tragically, the entire home and everything they owned, was destroyed in the fire. Vicki also lost her husband just a few short months ago. There is no insurance to help this family recover. Right now their most urgent need is clothing. The family’s sizes are below:"

Boy (13 years old)
Shirt 14/16 medium
Pants 16
Shoe 11
Underwear 14/16.

Woman
Underwear 9
Bra 44
Shirt 20/22
Pants 18/20

"Although we cannot give them back what they lost in the fire, we can help them with this most immediate need and more importantly, make this family feel that there is a community willing to help them get through this most difficult time in their lives.  The clothing items can be taken to Village Tire at 232 3rd Street in Cleveland.  Thank you for anything that you can bring."
