Fire Victims Get Help During Special Fundraiser

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Donations continue to roll in for a Poplar Grove family who had their home go up in flames while they were away on Thanksgiving Day.

Friends of the Matthes family held a fundraiser at the Lombardi Club in Rockford on Sunday to help them get back on their feet. The family didn't have insurance and lost everything in a fire while they were away at Thanksgiving dinner. At Sunday’s fundraiser, local businesses donated items to be auctioned off. The family says they’ve been overwhelmed by the support and are grateful for the help.
