REBECCA, GA (WALB) - The community came together in a big way to help a Rebecca family who lost their home to a fire earlier in March.

Monique Lewandowski and her son and daughter say they are grateful that people from Turner County, Albany, Tifton and surrounding communities have helped them.

People have given her family clothes, toys, furniture just to name a few. The family has also received cards, and donations from schools and churches. They want to express their gratitude to everyone who reached out.

"It's amazing how a small community like this has gotten together to help out a neighbor and it's truly a blessing, said mother and fire victim, Monique Lewandowski.

"It just changed things around because I know if I don't have something I'll be okay and it's important to be thankful to have the things we have," said her daughter Bethany Williams.

The family is staying with friends until they can find a another home. They're next plan is to write thank you cards.

If anyone wants to donate any household items to the family click here.
