Neighbors say even though they didn't know the family very well, they want to help in any way they can. That could be through financial assistance or just being there for support.
Neighbors, some of them family friends, others complete strangers, continued stopping by 82 Grape Street on Monday with balloons, cards and candles. They say it's their way to show their support and sorrow for the family that lost four children in a deadly fire early Saturday morning.
Others in the neighborhood say they want to get together and do more than add to the growing memorial outside the gutted home.
"Everybody's coming together getting shirts up, donations for the kids, there's a lot of people that's stopping. We don't know too much about what's going on with the family and stuff like that, but everybody around here, we're going to do something for them," said Alexis Owens.
Even those living blocks away from Grape Street want to step up and help. A member of the Campbell Street Block Association says she was contacted by a resident of Grape Street asking for whatever assistance the block association can offer.
"What we want to do is just be a resource to see how we can help and if there is anything we can do to do it for them. I don’t know the family, from my understanding they just moved here a few months ago in this neighborhood, and we just want to be a resource to them if anything that we can do for them,” said LeJune Kennedy of the Campbell Street Block Association.
Small groups offering the family assistance have been springing up since Saturday's fire. Most say they don't have any concrete plans yet, but are working on doing something to help this grieving family get through a very difficult time.
