Community Rallies To Help Police Officer, Family Whose Home Burned Down


SHARE BUT OTHERWISE WE’VE PUT DETAILS OF WHAT WE KNOW. YOU’RE GOING TO FIND THAT UNDER LINKS AND NUMBERS. A NORTH TEXAS POLICE OFFICER AND HIS FAMILY WERE SLEEPING FIRE DESTROYED THEIR HOME. THEY GOT OUT BUT THEY ONLY GOT OUT WITH THE CLOTHES ON THEIR BACK. TODAY AS GILMA AVALOS TELLS US, PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER ARE STEPPING UP TO HELP. Reporter: TONIGHT THE DONATIONS KEEP POURING IN. EVEN WORK OUT CLOTHES THEY ASK FOR. BECAUSE THEY REALLY DID LOSE EVERYTHING. Reporter: THE COMMUNITY RALLYING AROUND A TROPHY CLUB OFFICER AND HIS FAMILY AFTER A LATE NIGHT FIRE CONSUMED THEIR KELLER HOME AND EVERYTHING INSIDE. I — IT’S WHERE OUR BABIES HAVE GROWN UP AND OUR COMMUNITY. Reporter: BUT IT’S THAT COMMUNITY THAT IS STEPPING UP TO HELP. THERE’S OVER 4,000 KIDS THAT HAVE GOTTEN TO KNOW JEFF OVER THE LAST 2.5 YEARS. I THINK THAT’S ONE OF THE BIGGEST CONTRIBUTORS BECAUSE HE’S SUCH A NICE YOUNG MAN. AND A LEADER IN THE COMMUNITY. Reporter: LESS THAN 48 HOURS AFTER THE FIRE, FROM BYRON NELSON HIGH SCHOOL TO THE TROPHY CLUB EMERGENCY ASSOCIATION ALL HAVE MOBILIZED. WE’RE AT OVER $2,500 RIGHT NOW FOR DONATIONS FROM INDIVIDUALS. WHAT RESINATES WITH PEOPLE IS IT COULD HAPPEN TO THEM. THIS COULD HAPPEN TO ANYBODY. Reporter: THE ANNILOS HAVE NEVER LOST PERSPECTIVE. THEY LOST THEIR HOME BUT NOT EACH OTHER AND THEY’RE CERTAINLY NOT ALONE. YOU DON’T REALIZE YOUR EFFECT ON YOUR COMMUNITY AROUND YOU UNTIL SOMETHING HAPPENS AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT’S LIKE, IT BLOWS YOU AWAY. I JUST TWAOPBT SAY — I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU. I KNOW THERE’S SO MANY PEOPLE TO THANK AND I JUST CAN’T DO IT INDIVIDUALLY. BUT IT’S JUST, JUST THANK YOU TO OUR COMMUNITY. AND THE FAMILY WAS ABLE TO SALVAGE SOMETHING IRREPLACEABLE. THEIR CHILDREN’S BABY BOOKS FULL OF MEMORIES. TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF THE OUTPOWERING OF SUPPORT HERE A FAMILY AT THEIR CHILDREN’S SCHOOL SIMPLY HANDED OVER THE KEYS TO A HOUSE WITH THE ANNILLOS ARE CURRENTLY STAYING.
