GLCC Supports Relief Effort for Greenwood!

Today Green Lake Community Council Chairman Michael Cornell presented a check for $500.00 to the Lee Harper, Executive Director of Phinney Neighborhood Association for the Greenwood Disaster Relief Fund to help businesses and employees affected by this week's huge gas explosion in the heart of the historic, vibrant and important Greenwood neighborhood.

"Most of the businesses affected by the Greenwood explosion were local, independent, non-chain, non-franchise businesses. Independent businesses like these and the people who work there are big parts of the hearts and souls of Seattle's distinct neighborhoods. We must support them," Michael Cornell said. Insurance may be slow or reluctant to pay claims and may not help employees who are out of work until their places of business reopen. The Phinney Neighborhood Associate established the fund within hours of the Wednesday morning explosion that leveled three businesses and affected dozens of other neighborhood businesses and apartments.

Cornell and Green Lake Community Council have challenged other community councils, neighborhood associations and chambers of commerce to match or beat the donation from Green Lake. Checks for the relief fund can be made out to Phinney Neighborhood Association with "Greenwood disaster relief" in the memo, and sent to PNA-Greenwood Relief Fund, 6532 Phinney Ave N., Seattle, WA 98103.
