If you can help the victims of the fire that destroyed Building B at the Lam Bow Apartments on Sept. 27 you are urged to bring needed items to the Delridge Community Center.

Update :Can you help Lam Bow Apartment fire victims?

Donation drive successful; people asked to stop for now

The outpouring of community support for the victims of the recent fire at the Lam Bow apartments on Delridge Way has been amazing, but the things donated have quickly over taken the ability of those in charge to store and sort it.

People had been asked to bring clothing and other items to the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center but David Bestock of the center said today, "We’ve got a ton of donations here, are having to call in support to sort stuff and disseminate to shelter residents, and I think at least until displaced folks find a place to live, we’ve got more than they can handle."

All the donations made were greatly appreciated but for now, please hold off at their request.
