Donations are being accepted on the GoFundMe crowd funding website. As of Wednesday afternoon, more than $2,100 had been collected; that money will go toward replacing home furnishings and other items that the Druse family lost in the storm.

Monetary donations for the Druse family are also being collected at any Homewood District 153 . . .
