PRESCOTT - Neighbors of a family who lost their home and possessions early Saturday morning to a fire in the 1200 block of Mosher Lane are rallying together on Friday, Feb. 12 and Saturday, Feb. 13, for a yard sale to benefit them as they strive to recover.
Judy Laurvick, 71, and her two granddaughters, Briar Perry, 16, and Addison Perry, 2, escaped after their German shepherd mix dog, Misty, alerted them to a shed fire that spread to the adjoining home. The tragedy was compounded by the loss a month earlier of Laurvick's son, Kevin Perry, 50, the girls' father.
The family is temporarily residing with Addison's mother, Regina Kaiser.
The yard sale is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday and from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday. The sale proceeds will be used to benefit the family who lost their house and all their possessions.
Family friends, too, established a GoFundMe account where people can make financial donations to assist with expenses. The Coalition of Compassion and Justice is also assisting the family with necessary items such as food and clothing.
