As you probably know by now, 3 of the five children who lost their lives in Sunday morning’s fire at that Erie (PA) daycare were the kids of a local Firefighter. As the fire broke out, Luther Jones was responding to another call in the city (mutual aid) just blocks away as a member of the Erie area Lawrence Park Fire Department. LPFD was asked to assist in handling other calls while the Erie Fire Department operated at that multi-fatal overnight day care fire on West 11th Street.
To help Firefighter Jones and his family cover funeral costs, LPFD is setting up a bank account with Northwest to collect donations.
Donations for Luther’s family can be made at any Erie Northwest Bank branch. For those out of town, the address donations can be mailed to is: Northwest Bank 4270 E. Lake Rd Erie, PA 16511 *The account name for donations is the Lawrence Park Fire Department: Luther Jones Family Fund *
Any questions? Call the bank at: (814) 898-1606 or the LP firehouse at (814) 899-4988
(Right now there is no online way to donate as per the bank)
Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
