From an email I received:

Victims of the fire at 3145 Mount Pleasant Street have been relocated to the Best Western Hotel on South Capital and I Streets SW through Saturday night. City officials and community workers are helping to find semi-permanent housing for the displaced tenants until the building is refurbished and they can move back in. We’ve been in close contact with Yasmin Romero at the tenant association and other workers orchestrating relief efforts. Below are the latest needs – Yasmin and the other tenants are incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support from the community:

 

Main Needs for Volunteers and Donations:

1. Translation at the Hotel

We need translation for tenants who are now housed at Best Western Hotel at I and South Capitol Streets SW. The Hotel is right next to the DC Inspection Station. You will be helping translate for people working with DC officials to determine medium and long term needs. Please call Jackie Reyes at 202-340-8255 or write her at Jackie Reyes <[email protected]>; it would be greatly helpful if you can provide these services TODAY
