CUSHING, Iowa (AP) - Since the Droegmiller family lost their home and belongings to a fire in March, they have been overwhelmed by help from others.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1C6ykKG ) that when Elaine Droegmiller explained why she was buying eight pairs of shoes, another customer volunteered to pay for them.

After the fire in Cushing that likely started with an electrical problem friends and classmates helped replace the autographed team balls and the River Valley letter jacket that high school senior Jordan Droegmiller lost in the fire.

Donations from people in the community helped the family replace Jordan’s senior pictures.

The Droegmillers are planning to buy a modular home for their farm that they will move into later this year. Until then, the family is renting a home in Cushing.
