Rachel's 1190 in Georgetown is collecting items for the victims of the Crown Villa apartment fire.

When employees got to work on Friday morning, they were greeted by a pile of items at their front door.

They say it is unbelievable the support that has already been provided.

"It really started as a spontaneous thing. I said I would accept some donations and I put it on Facebook and the community took it from there," said Rachael Aldinger, owner of Rachael's 1190.

Any items the families cannot use immediately will be sold in a garage sale on Dec. 14 at Rachael's 1190 and the proceeds will also go to the families.
