“Fish in the Hood’s Bill White is in Hospital” Fundraiser Launched

Georgia and Otis Pl, NW

Thanks to Gina for sending: “Bill has been in the hospital off and on for about a month, with a collapsed lung in several infections.”

The GoFundMe says:

“We all know Bill White as the beloved long-time owner of Fish in the Hood located in Park View off Georgia Ave. Bill always has a smile, joke and kind word for whomever is lucky enough to come by his seafood take-out restaurant that has become a landmark institution in the neighborhood for over 20 years.

The community rallied around him as he struggled to reopen after the April 2017 fire and throughout the pandemic.

Now he needs our help more than ever. Bill has been hospitalized with a collapsed lung brought on by an undiagnosed infection that has left him weak and with breathing troubles. Like many small business owners that have been forced to decide which bills to pay during the economic crisis brought on by COVID, he does not have health insurance. Due to this medical emergency, he hasn’t been able to operate his restaurant for over a month.

As he has supported the community all these years, please help Bill to receive the medical support he needs to recover. Bill hopes to be able to thank you in person when this latest challenge is behind him!”
