A bank account has been established at Milford Federal Savings & Loan for a family of five burned out of their house on East Main Street in Milford Sunday.

Donations by check or in cash at the bank can be made to: O'Neill/Hayes Family Fire Fund.

The family includes three small girls, ages 2 to 7, who were at home at the time of the fire Sunday. All escaped safely, but the house is not habitable.

The Milford Fire Department has determined the fire was accidental and had its origin in an electrical outlet in a first-floor apartment.

Contributions and donations of toys and clothing also are being accepted at TD's Pub on behalf of the family.

This is a FUND that I trust an will be happy to make Donation too. Too many funds going on at the same time hard to trust anyone these days . I don't understand if you have Mass Health WHAT are your expenses ? An can we trust the people asking to donate the rest ( leftover ) money to a Medical fund( cancer, heart, diabetes) ??? does any one over see these funds asking for donations to see if there REAL?

@ Breaking...I didn't see anything about MassHealth. These funds will go to the family for their basic needs. Food, clothing, housing etc. They probably have nothing so they need everything. I also don't see there being any "leftover" monies. I'm sure this family will need every penny they get. BTW Masshealth isn't like it used to be for everyone. There ARE monthly expenses involved for some now. I know people that work and still need it and they pay 116.00 a month. I think theirs is called Commonwealth Care and it's with Mass health. They pay more each month on that plan than I do with BC/BS and they get less benefits.

The fund set up is for a family in need! Every penny will go to the things that will never be replaced. There are 3 young girls that need a roof over their halead and deserve an amazing Christmas. I helped with the idea of setting up the account and I am heading up the fundraising at TDs. If anyone has doubts or questions, please ask me directly. Also, masshealth was never once mentioned and not sure as to why it was?! Let's focus on the point of the article which was very well explained above. Thank you!

Amanda, I left a message with the American Red Cross for him, if he wanted to contact me, but have not heard back. If anyone is setting up an account for him, I would like to know as well. Would be happy to publish.
