QUESTION: I ran into a Brawley family in at Valley Plaza in El Centro. They were was looking for The Salvation Army to buy beds. They lost everything in a fire. Their mobile home burned down last week and the kids are sleeping on the floor. They had just paid off the mobile and they had no insurance.
Do you think PROBE readers could find a couple of cots or bunk beds for the two little boys? — Senior Adviser, El Centro
We had to depend on 12-year-old Miguel to tell us what the Manuel Lemus family needs. His parents don't speak English.
The family doesn't need much, Miguel said.
"We got a lot of help," he said.
They do need kid beds, pillows and sheets and pillow cases.
He said he and his brother Carlos, 8, need school supplies. Miguel has a backpack given to him after the fire.
