“Dear PoPville,

Can you put up a post about the fire at 9th and Rock Creek Church Rd. NW GoFundMe campaign created by their neighbors? They need money for new housing, help buying clothes and incidentals that were taken by the fire.”

The GoFundMe says:

“Their building is uninhabitable and it is unclear when repairs will begin.

Our neighbors have lived here in Petworth far longer than the few years I’ve been in my building.

Feven, her daughter, and their dog want to stay here in Petworth, the place they’ve called home for so long. Her daughter goes to school nearby and she wants her to have the same easy commute she has always had.

The 3 other neighbors in the building and their 4 dogs need help, too. They want a new place and safe housing for their dogs.

The fire took their safety, their belongings, melted pieces of their life away.

But it shouldn’t take them out of our community.

Washington, DC isn’t as cheap as it was when they moved into the neighborhood. This city has become expensive. And housing doesn’t come cheap.

Their most essential needs are:
– Funds to help with housing, clothes/shoes, and replacing other essentials
– Help finding a safe inexpensive place to live near where they have always lived at 9th and Rock Creek Church Rd. NW.
Help spread the word!”
