On December 18, 2022, a car crashed into the front entrance of businesses located at 6 and 8 Corinth Street in Roslindale Village, specifically Sebastian's Barber Shop and Threading for Beauty. The impact was so severe that the building's facade came down, damaging several businesses on the second floor, as well. The Fire Department is still assessing the impact of the crash, but we can be sure that the shop owners and their employees will be greatly affected by the sudden loss of their businesses, especially during this holiday season.
As a fellow Roslindale resident, I wanted to find a way to help these business owners and their employees. I have no direct connection with any of these businesses or their owners, other than I know several of them as fellow Rozzidents.
For distribution of the funds raised, I have partnered with Roslindale Village Main Street, Inc. (RVMS), our local non-profit focused on promoting the Roslindale Village business district. All funds will be placed into an RVMS account and distributed to the impacted business owners and their employees. RVMS will be soliciting information from each business detailing the extent of their loses due to the accident, and the proceeds distributed equitably based on that information.
Many thanks for any donations!
