Cornwall ON – Ashley MacDonald has had about the worst thing that can happen to a person happen. Her home on Gloucester Street in Cornwall Ontario was the scene of a blaze early this morning, days before Christmas.
The single mom of an eight year old boy is still in shock. She’s hoping to return to the home tomorrow and try and find personal belongings including a picture her son made for her for Christmas.
No word yet on if she’ll be able to get another housing unit and in the meanwhile a collection has been started. Donations can be made at The Agape Centre and at Cornwall Housing (Pitt and Tollgate) in Cornwall Ontario.
Mark A MacDonald, no relation, former City Councilor of Cornwall and retired Fire Fighter is helping Ms MacDonald find new digs and leading the appeal as she’s lost everything and like many had no insurace.
We’ll be updating the story tomorrow.
