Salvation Army looking for donations to help Manitowoc fire victim's family

 The Salvation Army of manitowoc is looking for your help to assist the family of the woman who died in a fire last week.

The family of Dana Bushman reached out to the Salvation Army by email to help pay for funeral costs for her.

“Hello, I am seeking financial help to pay for a funeral. My Daughter Dana Bushman, only 57, died in an apartment fire. She was a sweet gentle soul, and I am still in Shock. She had a minimal amount for living and food. It is left for me to pay for her funeral. I have nothing either. I live from SS check to check. I am trying to figure out how to get help. Thank you,” wrote Elaine Bushman

“This is not a need we could ignore” stated Lt. Jeff Olson, Salvation Army Commanding Officer. “We don’t have any resources available to us that haven’t come from the generous citizens of Manitowoc County. So we are asking again for your help Manitowoc County.”

Bushman died last week in a fire at the Parkview Haven Apartments that forced 88 people from their home.

The Salvation Army is setting up a separate fund for those donations.

Any extra money collected will go to help other victims of the fire.
