Westover Merchants Damaged by Flood 7/8

This morning, 7/8/2019, 4.5 inches of rain fell in an hour, causing extreme flash flooding in the Westover neighborhood of Arlington. Part of the Westover Shopping Center -- Ayers Hardware, the Westover Beer Garden and other shops -- was deluged. The businesses's main levels and storage basements were inundated with water. These businesses are the heart and soul of the Westover community. I am hoping neighborhood residents and folks across Arlington County will contribute to this campaign to help the businesses cover cleanup costs, property repair costs, inventory damage costs and associated loss-of-business costs.

The money raised will primarily be for Ayers and the Beer Garden and allocated according to need. Please help!  Anything is better than nothing!!
