A fire ripped through two units at the Preston Del Norte apartments in Far North Dallas late Tuesday night, leaving two families with nothing but the pajamas they were wearing. The children attend Anne Frank Elementary, Franklin Middle School and Hillcrest High School, and school counselors have sent out donation requests to help.
The families need everything from housewares to furniture but the most crucial thing is clothes. Tonya Montoya, a counselor at Anne Frank, sent us this list of details for the two families:
