!!!!FIRE!!!! Please Help!!!!
« on: August 24, 2008, 07:45 PM »
Thursday afternoon our apartment complex suffered a horrific fire. 36 apartments were burned to the ground. 36 famililes were left with nothing but the clothes on their back. Gratefully, no one was injured, although a number of pets were lost. By the grace of God our building was saved.

Contributions are sorely needed!!!

You may contact:

Harbor Club South
36000 Jefferson
Suite L 107
Harrison Township, Michigan 48045

or call
1-586-791-1441


Thank you,
Linda Cable

Thank you for your concern Witt.

We had a little smoke damage. Nothing major. My spirit is down. The birds have gone.
I just do not feel very artsy farsty at present. All I feel is numb.

Linda, I'm glad you are okay. I do have a question if I could, just
seeing your other note to Steve. Are you asking for money here
or clothes, food or Red Cross donations or exactly what?

Thank you for your response Kay.

At the time of my first post I guess I was asking for anything. That it why I included the address and phone number of our complex. Any who wish to donate should contact the office. They would know what is most needed at this time. Of the 38 (now), apartments that were destroyed, only four of those residents had insurance. One third of our community was taken out by this fire. Several artists lost all of their work. Families with children are a major concern for me. They have brought in "pods" to contain the material donations that are coming in from our area. But I do not see much in the way of childrens clothing and such.
I have a hard time writing about this. I am crying again. Got to take a break!

Again many thanks,
Linda

Linda,

Thanks. This is a tragic thing that has happened. I am so sorry to hear
about this. I wanted to make clear that I wasn't personally requesting
to donate, I was requesting to be clear on what you meant by your original post.
I just wanted to be clear on what you were actually seeking from the
community here. "Contributions" could be money (as I originally thought)
or Red Cross, or clothes, etc)
Is the Red Cross involved? I have a neighbor who is being evicted
and has no food. I know several other people who have lost their homes.
I'm not sure about placing their addresses on a public site though.
That's why I asked about the Red Cross.

the important thing is you are okay.

Thank you Kay.

I would not post personal information or addresses.

My post involving the tragedy to this community has been written with managements knowledge and cooperation. Thus it includes only the business and banks name and address provided to me by management.
The Red Cross is involved.

I understand the fire can be viewed on ABC.com. I am sure it can be googled on any number of sites. We have been a tourist attraction for three days. It is probably one of Michigans largest apartment fires in recent history.

There are people in need here! I request help from our members out of a sense of community.
