Last week we talked about homelessness and last night some of us learned that someone of our Sangha has come face-to-face with it….Ric’s son was born in PRAG House and lived there with his Mom. We have several close connections there. In case you don’t know about the fire and/or would like to help, here’s some information.
Seattle Yoga Arts has setup a fund-raiser for Ric’s son and ex-wife’s (it says they’ll be homeless for a year!):
This is from PRAG’s Facebook page… asking for hands-on help this weekend.
Dear Friends of PRAG!
So many of you have reached out to make offers up help. We’re ready for some!!!
We need to get all of our stuff out of the house this weekend if possible. Many of us will need places to store our belongings as well.
WE NEED –
- Trucks for moving things
- People to box and move personal items that survived the fire
- Respirator masks for anyone who wants to use one while they are in the house
- Storage locations (short or long term)
- Someone to bring us food and drinks sometime during the day
We will be there from early until there isn’t any light. There is no electricity in the house, but the bathrooms work. Please share with folks who may want to help.
