The Red Cross is providing temporary and emergency shelter to the displaced residents, but they still need other short-term needs.

The two sponsors of the GoFundMe page are seeking to raise $5,000 per family for a total of $150,000.

Furniture and other household needs like food, appliances, clothing, diapers, toiletries, and more are also needed.

As of Wednesday morning, more than $5,000 were raised by 101 people in one day.

If contributions exceed the $150,000 goal, a scholarship fund will be set up to benefit the youth impacted by the fire at Rainbow Terrace.
