Fire victims in need of basics, donations

Residents dislodged by a major fire Monday night at a complex managed by the Barrie Municipal Non-Profit Housing Corporation are in immediate need of some basic items.
They are:
• Blankets and sheets (twin, double, queen)
• Clothing (infant, toddler and school age)
• Diapers and pullups/ baby wipes
• Dog and cat food, litter and other pet supplies
• Personal hygiene items (shampoo, soap, razors, deodorant etc.)
Emergency crews responded to the fire at 100 Little Ave. The building is a multi-unit building. No injuries were reported among the 70 residents, but the fire has left all 25 units in the building inhabitable. All people displaced by the fire are currently being accommodated at a nearby hotel.
Many Barrie residents have expressed an interest to help the victims affected by this fire. Monetary donations to one of the Go Fund Me campaigns is the preferred way to help. Visit or to make a donation.
Item donations (new or gently used) will be collected in the Rotunda of City Hall (70 Collier Street) until Friday, April 27 at 4:30 p.m.
