As most are aware, a lightning strike was responsible for a fire that heavily damaged an eight-condo building in the Wyckoff’s Mill community. All residents escaped safely, but are in need of assistance. Many thanks to all who have responded to the need for material items (clothes, food, etc.); you have fulfilled the need and we are grateful. However, the need for cash funding to support other needs such as temporary housing are still needed. To make cash donations, please go to www.hightstownmethodist.org, and click on “On-line Giving” at the bottom of the page.
