CASA coordinates outpouring of support for fire victims

Thanks to overwhelming support from the community, including many Takoma Park residents and the Takoma Park Police Department, CASA received plenty of clothes and food to assist those displaced by the fire at the Flower Branch Apartments in Silver Spring on Aug. 10. According to its Facebook page, the organization is no longer accepting donations.

Monetary donations can be made through the Montgomery County Housing Partnership: donate/?cid=1110.

Food or clothing can still be donated at these locations:

  • Adventist Community Services, 501 Sligo Ave., Silver Spring
  • Interfaith Clothing Center, 751 Twinbrook Pkwy., Rockville
  • Manna Foods, 9311 Gaither Rd., Gaithersburg

Check these organizations’ websites for hours of operation. Please note that the TPPD is not able to accept any more donations at this time.
