Help our neighbors after Fire on Thorndale

The night before Thanksgiving, a fire blazed through 1522 and 1524 W. Thorndale. It left 4 of the 6 units uninhabitable and completely destroyed the unit where it began. (Here's a photo of the debris in back of the building.)43728666_1574964551337499_r.jpeg
Please help raise money for our neighbors to help them cover hotel rooms until they can find new places to live, buy warm clothes to wear as winter deepens its hold on Chicago, bury the kitten that didn't survive, take time off work to replace important documents, and begin to rebuild new spaces to have a place to call home.

Thank you for your generosity in this holiday season. Let's take care of our neighbors.
