Our hearts go out to everyone affected by yesterday’s natural gas explosion in the Greenwood Neighborhood. The explosion leveled a building which was home to Mr. Gyros, Neptune Coffee, and Greenwood Quick Stop. The explosion also damaged 36 other small businesses, including Seattle ReCreative, located directly across the street from the blast.
Seattle ReCreative was founded by two West Woodland Neighborhood Mom’s – Emily Korson & Jenna Boitano – and is closed until further notice.
How You Can Help:
Seattle ReCreative is planning a volunteer clean up effort on Friday, March 11th for all those who wish to pitch in and help with the clean-up effort. Once additional infromation is received, I will update this post.
If you’re unable to physically pitch in, there are other ways you can help. Phinney Neighborhood Association is accepting tax-deductible donations for the Greenwood Explosion relief fund and you can donate here: http://phinneycenter.org/greenwoodrelief/.
You can also donate directly to Seattle ReCreative here: http://www.seattlerecreative.org/financial-support/
With your help, we will see Seattle ReCreative & the other the Greenwood small businesses back open soon!
