A portion of Cherokee Manor in Centre was damaged by fire on March 25th and the laundry room still cannot be used. Due to the damage a total of 14 residents were displaced and the remaining 36 have to go offsite to wash clothes. Due to the generous donations received here at WEIS Radio, we have been able to help out with those laundry costs. On Wednesday, we delivered $140 worth of quarters to the Manor.
Kristie Barron, the Manager of Cherokee Manor, said she greatly appreciates the donations from WEIS Radio and the community.
Immediately following the fire in March, the WEIS Radio Disaster Relief Fund helped those 14 displaced residents with additional living expenses while staying in a motel or their new locations. The fund also assisted with the additional cost of renting a storage facility.
