Thanks to Julia for passing on these important fundraisers from Ward 4 Council Member Janeese Lewis George:

DCW4MutualAid is supporting the family displaced by the building collapse last week. You can give via CashApp $Arthemamoses or here with Moses Family in the ‘Honor Of’ field.”

“Also, the gentleman who was trapped in the rubble was left paralyzed and unable to walk. He went through spinal surgery and has a long road of treatment and rehabilitation ahead of him.

via GoFundMe “Leonardo is a 27 year old who came to the USA to pursue his American dream. Unfortunately, his dreams were interrupted by a brutal building collapse”

There’s a GoFundMe set up for him”

“I met this young man at the @dccoolidgeshs graduation. His grandmother tells me they’re $20,000 short of being able to send him to @Morehouse in the fall. He’s a DCIAA champion and a #Ward4Scholar. Let’s help Jasir get to Morehouse!”
