In an email to Patch, Myra Miller, a family aunt who has been helping organize support said the family no longer needs clothing donated. "They are very grateful for the donations and gifts that poured in as they literally had nothing but the shirts on their backs," Miller wrote.
Miller said her niece Jane Roth told her that they plan on either returning gifts "or paying them forward to another family in need or charity after they are no longer in such desperate need. She is humble, yet gracious, having a hard time accepting the tremendous outpouring of support as she thinks she needs to be the one giving."
