SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. - Multiple agencies joined forces to bring the victims of the Sun Prairie explosion financial and emotional support.
The Sun Prairie Lions Club, Knights of Columbus, United Way, Red Cross, Salvation Army and Sunshine Place set up different stations inside Sun Prairie High School Friday afternoon.
Their goal was to get the displaced families and other affected by Tuesday night’s explosion whatever they needed to get back on their feet.
“There are families that lost it all and we want to be able to restore that,” Joanna Cervantes, executive director at Sunshine Place, said.
Cervantes said the victims need monetary donations above anything else.
“Rent here in Sun Prairie, you really can’t find much below $900. So as you think about $900 for each family, that gets in the high thousands and tens of thousands that we need,” Cervantes said.
The event ran from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
