NEVERSINK, N.Y. -- The Neversink Fire Department held a fundraiser to help out a local family devastated by a fire last month.

About 40 volunteers from the department served up the meals to the community. All proceeds will help the Fitzpatrick family, who lost their home and all their possessions in a fire.

"We've had donations from everyone that we can think of from around the, from baskets, to chairs that we're raffling off, we have 50 50's and it's just a tremendous turnout and a great event for supporting this," said Neversink Fire Department Assistant Fire Chief Michael Congelosi.

"The amount of support we're getting from people in Sullivan County is just above and beyond and beyond Sullivan County, so many people coming together for our family, I'm just in awe," said homeowner Cosmos Fitzpatrick.

The Fitzpatrick family is still looking for donations of any kind.

If you'd like to help, you can send donations to the Neversink Fire Department, C/O Mike Congelosi at P.O. Box 367 Neversink, NY 12765.
