When the Schonert family of Valley City's house was destroyed by fire Monday, they escaped with only the clothes on their backs. Now the family, which is living temporarily in a Valley City motel, needs the help of the community to recover from the tragedy; and so far the community is responding.
While the family's immediate needs are being met, they still need a place to live and will need to furnish a new home, said Reverend Jim Black of First Baptist Church. They will need everything, said Black, from furnishings to appliances and linens.
