Money and donations of clothing, furniture and other household items are being accepted at the Swain County Sheriff’s Office to help Michael Harrison, a school resource officer whose home burned down.
Harrison was called home to Swain County last Friday from his National Guard duty after the fire, which occurred shortly after electric power had been restored that afternoon. His wife and two children had been staying with relatives and were not home at the time.
Clothing sizes needed are: men’s large shirts, 35-26/32 pants, and 10 or 10 1/2 shoe size; women’s small shirts, size 5 pants, and 7 1/2 shoe size; for a 5 year old boy: 5T clothes and child size 10 shoes; and for a 2 year old girl: 2T clothes and child size 2 shoes. Children’s toys acceptable for a 5 year old boy and a 2 year old girl as well as children’s books would be appreciated, along with encouraging letters or cards.
