Many of you may have heard the tragic news, Bay Meadows Apartments in Clearwater, had a major fire early Sunday morning.  Thankfully all residents and pets got out safely.  The 20 residents of this building lost everything and the building is destroyed.  Bay Meadows is a community in the Feather Sound district. 


We are asking our neighbors, their friends, family and co-workers to help.  We are in the process of setting up a fund at Bank of America to accept donations to help these individuals with rebuilding their lives.  Meanwhile we are also asking if you can donate anything.  They are in need of clothing, shoes, dishes, linens, silverware, cell phones, purses, wallets, pet supplies, small appliances like toasters and coffee makers, pots and pans, lamps, furniture, etc.  One family has 2 little girls ages 4 and 5. 


Please keep in mind these families lost everything they own.  Some do not even have shoes for their feet.  Just imagine how it would be if you lost everything in minutes.


If you are able to make cash donations, please see the Community Director, Danielle Hallman. 


I know times are tough for everyone right now.  Anything is greatly appreciated.


Bay Meadows already has a donation area set up at their property where you can drop off any donations.  You may call their office at 727-573-4601 if you need any more details.  Their address is 13621 Feather Sound Circle East, Clearwater, FL  33762.


Thank you for your assistance.
