Union City Fire Victims Fund

Raised by 618 people in 2 months
Created July 14, 2018
(UNION CITY, NJ) – A little before 9:00 AM on July 13, 2018, a fire was reported on the 400 block of 25th Street in Union City.  As a result of the five-alarm blaze, six people were injured of which two were fatal; a five-year-old girl and two-year-old boy.  Hours later, a seven-year-old succumbed to injuries at the hospital and over the weekend, a thirteen-year-old child passed from injuries sustained from the fire.  On July 17, 2018, another child, a four-year-old, passed away at the hospital.  Additionally, two adults and eight firefighters were taken to the hospital and multiple firefighters received medical treatment at the scene. 

“I am heart broken,” said Mayor Brian P. Stack.  “It is a very difficult day for Union City.  I continue to pray for the victims and their families and offer any resources I can to assist them.  I am extremely thankful for the efforts of our first responders who gave their all under extremely difficult circumstances.” 

At this time, the city and the Red Cross are providing temporary assistance for the fire victims. “Anyone wishing to provide support for the fire victims may do so through the Union City Fire Victims’ Fund and the Go Fund Me page set up by the city,” said Stack.  “Union City is a close-knit community and we will rally around these families and offer our continued love and support.”

The Office of the Mayor will be collecting donations in the form of a check or money order or through the Go Fund Me account.   Checks or money orders should be made payable to the Union City Fire Victims’ Fund and may be sent to:

Dear friends,

I want to take this opportunity to send my sincerest gratitude and thanks to everyone who donated to the fire victims fund.

The outpouring of community support and love is overwhelming. While no amount will bring back the precious children lost, 100% of the funds will be given to the family to assist in their necessities going forward.

Thank you again for all the support and love you have shown over the past few weeks. It is truly awe-inspiring.

Yours truly
Brian P. Stack
Mayor
