Community comes together to support Ghent family displaced by fire

CHURCHTOWN, NY (NEWS10) – Just days before the holidays the Lippman family from Ghent suffered a devastating fire where they lost everything in their house.

On Sunday afternoon, the community came together to give them some support. Members of the Churchtown community gathered for their annual Christmas party.

This year they wanted to help the Lippman family through donations and gifts after a fire Friday night destroyed everything, including presents for their children.

“It makes me sad no matter what time of year whether it be Christmas or not it’s sad to see a family lose everything they have and have to be put out. When we can do something to help as little as it is it’s worth it”, said event Co-chairman Lynn Brandt.

Lynn said any gifts left over will be donated to the Lippman family.
