Marydel Fire Department Assisting Tornado Victims, Launches Donation Site

Posted: Updated:

CAMDEN WYOMING, Del. - Recovery from a tornado that touched down on Thursday continues in Delaware, and the Marydel Fire Department is stepping up its effort to help victims.

Crews have been on the scene for the last few days, cutting away fallen trees and helping victims recover valuables from the rubble. Now, they've found a place for one family to put them. A storage unit has been donated for the couple, whose mobile home was destroyed in the F-1 tornado.

But the work doesn't stop there. The fire department is taking donations to support the family. They created a crowd-funding site www.YouCaring.com/Station56 for the couple.

They told 47 ABC that they are helping the family though fund raising, but are still supporting others victims as well. The crews could use donations of lumber to help repair several roofs that now have holes or are completely missing. If you'd like to help, contact the Marydel Fire Department at 302-492-1965, or Chief Buffy Madden at 302-382-9056.
