Home shower to benefit fire victims

The Indigo Rd. home of Eric and Clarissa Dutton of Peabody was consumed by smoke and fire Jan. 10, and three local women want to help the family get back on its feet.

Cora Bloomer, Sharon Pickens, and Deanna Baker are putting on a come-and-go home shower from 1 to 5 p.m. Jan. 28 at Peabody Christian Church.

“We’re organizing it,” Bloomer said. “All three of us are very good friends of the family. When my daughter told about it, I said, ‘My goodness, we need to do something for those kids.’ They lost everything.”

Bloomer said all household-related items are welcome, excluding clothing.

A fund for monetary donations has been established at Vintage Bank, Bloomer said.
