A Dutchess County community and a popular Hudson Valley supermarket are working to help the Fonda family after their home was gutted in a fire earlier this week.
Jessica Scalamaandre and her employer, Adams Fairacre Farms – along with many others – are doing what they can for a family they say has done so much for everyone else.
So far, more than $33,000 has been raised between donations from the farm and a GoFundMe campaign.
"They are the most selfless and giving and kind-hearted people,” said Scalamaandre. “It doesn't matter what color. What race. What background you have. What troubles you've gone through in your life. There's no judgement. There's always a seat at their table for you if you need them."
