The niece of a man whose Quincy home burned recently is seeking help paying for a hotel in Braintree for him and other necessities, according to his GoFundMe.com page.

Patch has partnered with GoFundMe and is helping to highlight worthy campaigns in local communities.

In one, 13 people have donated $770. The goal is $8,000.

From the page:

My Great Uncle Bob was in a house fire this past week. His house is completely damaged, and unlivable for the time being. He suffered bad burns to his face,head and hands. It will take a great length of time to figure out exactly what will become of the house and property. Until then, I am in desperate need of finding him a warm, safe place to stay. I'm in the process of setting him up in a hotel in braintree, which requires a $700.00 upfront per week deposit and is $89.00 a night. We are also looking into some local apartments, most of which are about $1800 a month plus deposits. Uncle Bob is an amazing guy. He worked hard his whole life, and now I'm trying my best solely to do whatever I can to help get him what he needs and place him in a new home. Everything in the house is destroyed, which I can't imagine losing 86 years of memories and belongings.
