On January 3rd, the Dubois family of Uxbridge experienced a chimney fire in their home, that resulted in permanent destruction to areas of the home and extensive smoke damage that affected their entire home. The family of eight was living in the home, including grandparents, parents and four children ranging in age from 3-15 years old. All Christmas gifts were destroyed in the fire, and the family will be displaced for months until the whole house gets cleaned and repaired. In the meantime, the Dubois family has been relocated to two trailers. Repairs are expected to be complete by June or July.
Charles River Bank in Mendon, MA has established an account to assist the Dubois family with all the unexpected expenses related to the fire. “This year has brought challenges for everyone, but when we heard about this destructive fire that impacted a family with young children in our community, we immediately wanted to help,” said Charles River Bank President and CEO Jack Hamilton.
