OELWEIN (KWWL) -
An Oelwein facility will accept donations for family members of the people who died in Friday's house fire near Arlington.
According to Craig Allen, the nursing home administrator at Grandview Healthcare Center in Oelwein, financial donations and sympathy cards can be mailed to the facility until an official account for the victims is arranged.
Allen said two nursing assistants who work at the facility are family members of at least three of the victims.
He said donations and cards can be mailed to:
Grandview Healthcare Center 800 5th St. SE Oelwein, IA 50662
Allen said anyone wishing to mail a donation or a card should specify it is for the "Smith family."
