Inside this home precious memories are gone but a mother and her 4 daughters continue to stay strong with the help of the community.
On Monday Emily Perez's home caught fire destroying almost everything inside.
Perez inherited the home from her mother who passed away within the last year.
Perez lived in the home with her 12,11, 10 and 7 year old daughter.
Since our story ran and people using social media to spread the word people in community have had big hearts giving donations.
City commissioner Jessica Tetreau is one of those helping out.
"The second this went on the air we my phone ran off the hook for 24 hours we have had donations from all over the valley."
Toys, clothes...school bags, just some of the many donations at Fiesta graphics, one of the drop off sites. Wednesday Emily Perez picked up some of the donations.
"It’s great to be in a town with so much love I couldn't imagine, I told my daughters we have nothing now they have teddy bears, jackets, shoes things they thought they wouldn’t have, and they are so happy, I am blessed to live a community like this.
All the donations were loaded up into Perez car for her to take to where she is staying.
Perez is currently staying at a friend’s place. She is hoping to start looking for an apartment or house soon.
