Ways You Can Help
List of Needs
How you help, what you give, and who you help is your choice. We realize that some people might like to donate tools and art supplies to the artists, while others might want to donate clothing and food to the residents. It all helps! We are trying to keep this organized and fairly distributed amongst all those who have suffered a loss.
Since the LAVA House served the dual purposes of living space and art studios, we are dealing with a complex web of needs. We are organizing the "needs" into two main categories:
1. Residential Needs - Several Glassworks employees were victim to a house/studio fire on 1/26/08 at the Lava House. They did not make it out with anything - no car keys, no IDs, not even shoes. One particular employee lost his dog in the fire. Donations for the residents are being collected by Glassworks / Architectural Glass Art and they have pladged to match all donations. The money collected by Glassworks will be split three ways between Bart, Hannah, and Seed.
DO NOT MAIL CASH! If you have cash to donate, please contact Hallie Jones (502-641-4413) or Aron Conaway (502-758-8338). We will make arrangements with you.
Individual Requests from the Residents
Things they DO NOT Need
We want to split all money that is raised for studio supplies equally in 9 ways. All other items, such as tools and supplies will be placed in storage until we can figure out what we're doing and how to split it up.
If there is a specific person you want your donation to go to, that is wonderful! Just let us know who should be the recipient of the gift.
For people who have duplicate tools, things in storage that they don't need, and items that they might not use, here are some things that can help.
More information and an updated list will be posted soon.
Please contact Hallie Jones (502-641-4413 - email@example.com) or Aron Conaway (502-758-8338 - firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to drop off donations. We will likely schedule a day and time for people to drop things off at our storage space.
|Thanks to Everyone for stopping by, calling, and emailing in support and concern. We're doing what we can to move forward from here.|
