Community Information on Pines of Perinton Fire

Pines of Perinton Fund

The Town has established a Pines of Perinton Fund to provide those impacted by the fire with relief as they recover and rebuild. This effort builds upon the strong initial support provided by first responders, Red Cross, Town of Perinton, Fairport School District, Monroe County, local churches, and grassroots organizations.

Checks can be made out to the Town of Perinton, and the memo line should note: Pines of Perinton Fund. Checks can be mailed or dropped off at Town Hall (1350 Turk Hill Rd. Fairport, NY 14450). Cash donations will also be accepted at Town Hall during our normal hours of operation, Monday – Friday; 9 AM – 5 PM.


Material Donation Form

The Town is working with many community organizations to secure items needed by the families and individuals. Some households are completely starting over, and others need to replace items lost or damaged.

If you have material items to donate, please fill out the form below and we will be in touch if your items match those needed. Donations should be in good condition, recently washed, and gently used.

At this time, we cannot accept donations unless we reach out to you directly. However, the Town is working with several local community organizations that may accept donations.

If you are part of an organization or neighborhood organizing a donation drive to collect items or funds, please reach out to Heather Moffitt, Community Services Coordinator at hmoffitt@perinton.org.

Updates from Supervisor Ciaran Hanna:

2/26/22:

“It was moving day for one of the households impacted by the Pines of Perinton fire, marking the 16th move coordinated by the Town. I was joined by my family, Town Board Member David Belaskas, Commissioner of Public Works Jason Kennedy, and Parks Director Chris Dudley. We spent the morning moving in furniture and housewares donated by Saint’s Place, along with a few new items purchased with donations from the Pines of Perinton Fund. The Perinton Food Shelf also dropped off a pantry of food items.

The Town and our committed volunteers continue to work hand-in-hand with each impacted household as they recover and rebuild. We are incredibly proud of all our community has done to help these neighbors get their lives back together after such a devastating fire.”


1/29/22:

“The Town is working with Monroe County Human Services to ensure all families impacted by the fire have access to safe temporary housing.


The Red Cross has made mental health professionals available to those impacted to provide emotional support and recovery assistance.


The Fairport Central School District is providing direct support to the families and children impacted.


The Town worked today with community volunteers to organize all of the community donations into a shop space donated by DiMarco Constructors. This is a private location where those impacted by the fire can get what they need.  

Thank you to all of the volunteers and organizations for their support.”


1/27/22:

“The Town continues to coordinate with the Red Cross, Fairport School District, Monroe County Human Services, the Pines of Perinton, and many local community organizations and churches. The Red Cross is performing individual assessments on those impacted by the fire, and temporary housing continues to be provided to those who need it.

Material donations are still on pause until assessments can be made and a list of needs is established. However, the generosity of this community never ceases to amaze me; from piles of donations, to support for the Pines of Perinton Fund, to a long list of offers from volunteers – thank you all. There were many families in our community impacted by this devastating fire, and all of your efforts are making a difference.”


1/26/22:

“Tuesday morning, a devastating fire occurred at the Pines of Perinton. Around 70 people were transported to the Perinton Community Center where the Red Cross, Town, and Fairport School District addressed immediate needs and completed assessments. In partnership with Monroe County Human Services and the Red Cross, everyone was placed in temporary housing by the evening hours.

We know Perinton is an incredibly generous community, and donations are being coordinated through many local organizations. However, the needs of impacted families are still being assessed and we cannot accept any clothing or material donations until those needs are known. Non-perishable food donations, as always, are accepted through Perinton Food Shelf.

The Town has established a fund to accept monetary donations that will be dispersed directly to those impacted by this fire. Checks can be made out to the Town of Perinton, and the memo line should note: Pines of Perinton Fund. Checks can be mailed or dropped off at Town Hall (1350 Turk Hill Rd. Fairport, NY 14450). Cash donations will also be accepted at Town Hall during our normal hours of operation, Monday – Friday; 9 AM – 5 PM.”
