Coventry, Parker Ford congregations adopt families after fire

Coventry Church of the Brethren and Parker Ford Church were among 15 area churches that adopted families after the Ashwood Apartments fire of July 30, 2020, in North Coventry Township, Pa.

Chester County has thanked the congregations among the wide variety of organizations assisting those affected by the devastating fire, according to an article in the Times of Chester County. The churches are supporting families with physical, emotional, and spiritual needs, said the news report.

The fire completely destroyed “45 homes, displacing 50 families and leaving 100 men, women, and children with only the clothes on their backs,” said the article. “Though four residents and two first responders were injured, thanks to the heroic effort of neighbors, the North Coventry firefighters and police department, everyone survived. The immediate and subsequent outpouring of support from the entire community has helped to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of all who lost their home.”
