Social Media, Residents Come Through For Family Following Tragedy

David Duran/Townsquare Media

The owners of the Lebanese Kitchen are the recipients of a generous donation.

The Purchase Street restaurant was destroyed earlier this month in a fire that remains under investigation.

After seeing footage of the fire, Michael Silvia, administrator of NewBedfordGuide.com and its Facebook page, decided to start a fundraising campaign urging area residents to give to the Moujabber family.

In about two weeks of fundraising, donors raised nearly $10,000 to benefit the Moujabber family.

Andrew Moujabber, son of owners Nabeh and Nouhad, says his parents are extremely grateful for the help.
