The Detective Christopher Jones Foundation (DCJF) drew from its emergency relief fund on Sunday to assist the Reiling family days after a fire destroyed their home on Hawthorne Lane in the Holly Hill section of Levittown.
Hours after the fire, board members from DCJF submitted a request to the emergency relief committee to assist the parents and eight children of the Reiling family. The amount of $1,250 was approved and, on Sunday, board members Suzanne Jones and Kellie Fronk delivered the check to the family.
DCJF thanks its volunteers and supporters for making this donation possible, and their continued support. Tickets are currently available for the foundation's annual memorial banquet, held at the Irish Rover Station House in Langhorne Jan. 29 at 6 p.m. Admission costs $25 for adults, $10 for children 12 and under.
The George Washington Elementary Parent Teacher Organization has scheduled a donation drive for Tuesday from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the school located at 275 Crabtree Dr. in Levittown. Online donations can also be made at GoFundMe.com and YouCaring.com.
