The small town of Shepherd near Mt. Pleasant suffered a downtown fire, destroying some apartments and businesses--but the response from the town was to create an online fundraiser to support the fire victims, which met its goal in days.
: This account was created to not only help the businesses and residents of this fire, but to come together as a strong community and help out our neighbors when they are in need. All donations will be given to the Village Office and be distributed to residents who need money for food, lodging, or family care expenses.
The fundraiser can be found online here
