Clovis Apartment Fire Creates Need for Help


FOR IMMIDIATE RELEASE – The Clovis Fire Department responded to a fire at Clovis Apartments, Monday, May 8, 2018 at approximately 4 p.m.  Luckily none of the 46 residents was seriously hurt, although all find themselves in need of short-term shelter, and at least four families will be displaced for longer since their apartment units suffered significant damage.

For the first night the affected residents were helped by family and friends and the management company for Clovis Apartments. Today all are receiving help through the American Red Cross for their immediate needs (help with clothing, medication, and a couple nights lodging). For the next phase, the community has come together by creating the Clovis Apartment Fire Recovery Committee to address longer-term needs. The CAFRC will focus on assisting the displaced residents with the goal of getting all back to permanent housing and replacing household items.

The CAFRC will rely on the community’s generosity to accomplish this goal. Financial donations to help these families should be made to United Way of Eastern New Mexico c/o Clovis Apt Fire Relief PO Box 806, Clovis NM 88102. Donations can also be made online at Clothing and furniture donations can be made to Matt 25 Hope Center (also Lighthouse Mission).

The CAFRC members include Erinn Burch-United Way of Eastern New Mexico, SylviaMontano-Clovis Municipal Schools, Steve Reshetar-Matt 25 Hope Center, Destry Hernandez-Mental Health Resources, Sistar Yancy-Christian Believers, Sandra Darling Roberts and John Reuter-American Red Cross, Elaine Williford-ENM Baptist Disaster Response, and Dan Heerding-City of Clovis.

Clovis Mayor Lansford is spearheading the fundraising efforts for the families impacted by the fire.  “I was saddened to hear of the 46 Clovis residents who have been recently displaced as a result of the fire at the Clovis Apartments on May 7th,” advised Lansford, Tuesday.  “Losing your home is very unsettling and stressful.  I encourage the community to rise to the occasion, to help families impacted by the fire at the Clovis Apartments get back to a stable environment.   It’s a time like this when neighbors come together to help a neighbor in need and to be thankful for agencies like the UW of ENM that spearhead the rapid response of our community.”
