BRUNSWICK--The Brunswick community is still recovering after an apartment fire takes the life of a four-year-old girl and leaves several others injured.
Twenty-four-hours later, the community is coming together to unite after such a tragedy.
Throughout Tuesday there were a steady stream of cars and people, driving by and walking up to taking pictures or drop of stuffed animals and flowers.
The night ended with a candle light vigil to remember not only 4-year-old Keagan, who passed away, but the six hurt and the dozens others displaced.
“We just had so much stuff that we just keep adding tables and people,” said volunteer Kimberlee Bublik. “There is easily 100 people here working today. there were people here all night long.”
St. Ambrose Parish's gym became a warehouse Tuesday. The community collected items for the displaced families.
“Absolutely incredible,” said volunteer Rachel Petrick. “I just hope the families in need are as blessed as the people going to help them.”
About five miles down the road, a group calling themselves “Strongsville Kids For Angels” also heard about the tragedy and wanted to provide their own type of miracle.
“So we can raise money to help the families and for the people who were involved in the fire because they kind of lost everything that night,” said the group's Sophia Kreze.
The group raised about $500 to donate to St. Ambrose for the victims.
Church officials will meet with the families over the next 48 hours to assess their immediate needs and create care packages. Once they're settled, they'll be able to fill their closets and cupboards once again.
St. Ambrose Catholic Parish will resume taking donations at 9 AM Wednesday morning. Officials say they have plenty of food and clothing for now, but need monetary donations including gift cards and money to help families with utilities and other expenses.
