FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Mustard Seed Furniture Bank is in need of your help in order to help the victims re-establish their homes.

"When we saw the Golfview fire, we got in contact with the Red Cross and also Golfview Apartments, and we met to see the needs of the residents that were burned out from the fire," Suzie Jordan said.

There were 26 adults displaced from the fire, and now they need items to furnish their living spaces.

"Most of them are college students so they need box springs and mattresses, complete bed frames, along with the bedding to go with those,"she added.

They need basic things like silverware, towels, drinking classes, and skillets,etc.

Ella Bashop lives in Golfview Apartments and said the building across the street that was home to the 26 adults is now an empty space.

They need all the help they can get.

"There's no electricity or anything in there. They don't have anyone in there right now,"Bashop said.

With the help of the Red Cross and the Mustard Seed Furniture Bank, she's hoping those families can get back on their feet.
