A month and a half ago on April 1st, a fire broke out on Lower Queen Anne, damaging homes and destroying the inhabitants’ possessions.
We’ve had readers ask what they can do, so I contacted our local HomeStreet Bank. There is a fund set up at the bank that any neighbor can donate to during bank hours.
According to the Queen Anne branch manager:
In addition, our local HomeStreet Bank has fresh coffee daily and if you stop by on Friday, you may be lucky enough to enjoy home baked cookies that a loyal bank client drops off every Friday. HomeStreet Bank is at 1835 Queen Anne Avenue N.
Thanks to HomeStreet Bank for supporting our neighborhood, and if you’d like to read a first-hand account of what the fire was like, you can read Tim Shields’ blog on the fire and the aftermath. Tim lived in one of the houses that burned, and escaped with only a few of his possessions.
