Family Thanks Community for Support After Apartment in Fire

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - A Corpus Christi mother and her five children who lost everything in an apartment fire earlier this week are thanking the community for their support.

3News viewers said they were touched by Tuesday night's story about the family in need, and many have been reaching out to Monica Garcia and her five children to help get them back on their feet.

Garcia's phone has been ringing non-stop since the story aired because of good people who want to help with everything from basic necessities to making sure the family has a place to sleep.

Kiii News Reporter Bill Churchwell met with the Garcia family Wednesday and came back with the details.
