North End Fire Relief Fund
The Khyber Centre for the Arts has set up a relief fund to aid those affected by the devastating fire on February 26, 2003 in Halifax's north end.
The fire ravaged half a city block destroying many apartments. The Fire department managed to evacuate the tenants of all of the apartments and thankfully nobody was hurt. However, many people lost their homes and all of their belongings. As renters most of the tenants were without home insurance leaving them with literally nothing. The North End Fire Fund will help those affected, many of whom are Khyber members, to re-establish themselves.
An account has been set up at the Royal Bank to accept donations.
The account number is 1021195, transit 0003.
Donations can be made at any Royal Bank branch.
Benefit Concert featuring:
Tuesday, March 4, 9pm
$8 Suggested Donation
New kitchen and household items can be dropped off at the Khyber.
