Silver Spring: Over $495K Raised For Residents Displaced By Friendly Garden Apartments Explosion and Fire On March 3

by MCS Staff

A March 3 explosion and fire devastated the Friendly Garden Apartments on Lyttonsville Road in Silver Spring, causing serious injuries, displacing more than 150 residents, and destroying multiple apartments. Many evacuated carrying very little or nothing.

So far the community’s generosity has been overwhelming, with over $495,000 donated and distributions to affected families underway, according to Montgomery Housing Partnership (MHP).

“It may seem like a lot, but there are many families that are impacted and some of those families lost everything. They literally lost everything.” explained MHP President Robert Goldman in an interview with Fox 5.

You can donate to provide relief to these families as they stabilize and try to move forward.  Funds are needed for transportation, clothing, supplies for children, and other essential items.

MHP is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our tax ID is 52-1631939. Your donation to the Lyttonsville Fire Fund is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. They also ensure that 100% of the donated funds will go to families impacted by the fire.
