This campaign is to help the families and businesses impacted by the explosion in downtown Durham today.
It is organized by a local fundraiser but will be distributed to businesses and families, either directly or through a local nonprofit organization. It will NOT go to the organizer of this campaign.
Details will be added as they unfold. I'll also include links to individual family campaigns here.
You can email the organizer at email@example.com if you have any questions or comments.
