Helping the victims of Marquette fire

As the investigation continues into the fire that damaged a home in Marquette on New Year’s Day, the community is banding together to help the family affected by it.
Two donation drop-off sites have been established.  Clothing can be dropped off at Jessica and Company in Marquette or at U.P. Insurance in Negaunee.  The family is in need of size 3T boys’ clothing and size 10 boys’ shoes, women’s tops in medium, size 4/5 women’s pants, and size 8 women’s shoes.
A benefit is scheduled for Wednesday, January 15 at the Ore Dock Brewing Company in Marquette from 6 to 8 p.m.  There will be a five dollar cover charge.  All of the money collected will help the family in need.
An online donation site has been set up via Gofundme.  To donate, head to
