NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The community is rallying around Zowie Martin-Levesque, the McCann Technical School senior seriously burned in an accident at the school on Wednesday.
A meal train has been set up for younger siblings and a raffle for a $500 gift certificate is being held by Hometown Tire Works to benefit the family.
Martin-Levesque reportedly caught on fire while welding in the school's metal fabrication shop and suffered third-degree burns. The Williamstown teen was taken to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield and then by medical helicopter to another hospital 3 1/2 hours away.
Her brother, Zavier Martin-Levesque, also a McCann graduate, is an employee at Hometown Tire Works, which described him as one of their star employees.
"We are hoping to help this family get through a tough time without having to worry about anything other than being there for her and her recovery," the tire company posted on Facebook.
Tickets for the $500 gift certificate to any service or purchase at Hometown are $1 each and can be bought at the Ashland Street location or through Venmo @HometownTire
. All earnings will be going directly to the family.
The meal train is being organized by Stephanie Luczynski to help out Zowie's siblings and family members while her parents are with her at the hospital.
