Fabric Row Fire Relief

I was deeply saddened to learn of the fire earlier this month in Philadelphia’s historic Fabric Row.  The fire took the life of one firefighter, consumed Jack B. Fabrics, and caused damage to several adjacent businesses and homes.

I recently blogged about my experience on Fabric Row, so I won’t rehash the historic significance and current scene, but this loss is a definite blow to an area and industry that was already in transition.

A fund has been set up by the local community to help the victims, and if you are local to Philadelphia, there will be a fundraising even on April 24, 2013.  More details here.
