The following was from Stu Davenport on the Eckington Listserv Wednesday:
This morning there were 2 large fires in our neighborhood where the families lost almost everything.
I just spoke with Kim Stancil from 11 Randolph NW, and she and her 5 children (three of whom are students at Emery Elementary) were left with nothing but the clothing on their backs.
Most immediately Ms. Stancil and her family need clothes and funds to provide for essential needs.? They have housing for the next 3 days through the Red Cross, and she is working with Ted McGinn and Stacy Jackson from Emery to get local and government help. She is also reaching out to local churches and the Ecumenacle Council.
I am writing to ask for immediate help from the community.
