So many people want to know how to help the victims of last week’s horrible arson at 85th and Greenwood, here’s a recap, and some new info.
Sanctuary Church, which held services inside Taproot Theatre and created the Green Bean Coffee House, set up the Greenwood Fire Relief Fund at Chase Bank at 85th and Greenwood. This fund will be distributed to all the businesses affected by the fire.
You can also donate directly to the Green Bean through a PayPal link on their website.
The Wing Dome is donating money from certain burger and beer sales at its Greenwood location, 7818 Greenwood Ave. N., this Sunday. From 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., the Wing Dome will donate $2 for each Mac & Jack beer and $4 for each Firehouse burger sold. Donations will go to the Greenwood Fire Relief Fund.
Browns Coffee at 19042 15th Ave. NE in Shoreline, which roasts coffee beans for the Green Bean, has developed a special “Burnt Bean Blend.” It sells for $16 a pound, and $12 of that will be donated to the fire victims. That blend is not currently available on the website, only in the Shoreline shop. But, owner Neal Brown would love to place some of that coffee in Greenwood and Phinney shops, so if your business would like to help, call him at 206-661-9654 or email him.
And several people have emailed us about wanting to set up some kind of fundraising event, possibly a concert. If you are organizing such an event, please let us know in comments so we can spread the word.
If anyone knows of any other fundraising effort, please put a note in comments.
