Community members have set up donation drop-off points to raise money for a West Islip family after a Monday afternoon.
The Gustavson family, who own the house, were not injured, but the damage the fire caused to their home has been devastating. The family has two daughters, ages 7 and 13, who attend Oquenock and Udall Road schools.
Donations of cash and gift cards to supermarkets, clothing stores and department stores are currently being collected for the family.
Drop off points are:
Hohorst Family Home- 6 West Court, West Islip, NY
Scholosser Family Home- 41 Roderick Rd., West Islip, NY
Bernstein Family Home- 619 Sandra Ave., West Islip, NY
