After the Fire, Benefits and Bank Accounts Set Up to Help Those Affected By Loss
Over on her Web site, council member Angela Hunt has compiled a list offering the myriad ways folks can help the some 100 employees who lost their jobs when Terilli's, Mick's, Hurricane Grill and Greenville Bar & Grill burned to the ground Tuesday morning. And, yes, that does include the Double-Wide benefit Sunday night and the St. Patrick's Day block party, per the Taste of Greenville Avenue Web site:
A portion of the $8 admission to the March 13 St. Patrick's Day block party on Lower Greenville will benefit the burned restaurants, which will sell food and drink at the party in a tent on the parking lot behind Blue Goose. Since that parking lot was used for employees in previous years, the block party organizers have decided to start the Mockingbird Station shuttle at 7 a.m. so that employees can get to work. The shuttle is free for party-goers.
And, of course, there's the Help Lower Greenville Facebook page, which is filling up with help-wanted ads and other acts of human kindness.
