SCHWENKSVILLE, Pa. (WPVI) -- The incredible community support continues for the Lukens family after the tragic loss of their two sons in a house fire earlier this week.

Members of FC Providence Soccer Club set up a gift wrapping station at Philadelphia Premium Outlets to raise money for the family.

Players from the girls' team say they want to do whatever they can to help - even if it means putting their own dreams aside.

"So, initially we had it set up for the girls to help fund raise for them to go to Disney, and all of them unanimously voted to donate the proceeds to the Lukens family. We really want to help bring some peace to them," explained Margie Schoeniger.

The Lukens share a strong connection with this soccer program.

The dad, Montgomery County Sheriff's Deputy Bryan Lukens, also coaches for Providence.

One of the boys who died in the fire was a member of the team as well.
