Another sad event has the silver lining of being able to help a member of our community in need. Cupcake Royale’s Jody Hall sent out this message today about Capitol Hill store manager Jaime, her daughter Hanna and dog, Pearl, who lost their home in an apartment fire early this morning. The mail from Hall is below. Cupcake Royale’s 1111 East Pike location is the drop-off point for donations.
Terrible news about Jaime – her apartment burned down last night – and pretty much lost everything (thankfully, her daugher and Jaime weren’t there last night – and her dog Pearl is ok).
Honestly, we’re stunned – but we want to rally to help out Jaime and Hanna. We have a lead on a great apartment – randomly via Kim as she was looking for a place to stay while in Seattle.
Hanna is a sweet 9 year old – loves girly girl stuff – and is a size 9. Her shoe is size 2.
Jaime is a size 6 and a size 7 shoe
They need the following:
Clothes & Shoes
Couch & Furniture
Dining table and chairs
Wondering if folks have ideas on how to raise funds for this as well as a way to do a clothing/supply drive using our stores, customers, facebook, etc.
Would love your ideas on how we can help Jaime.
Seattle Fire responded to an apartment fire on Minor Ave E in Eastlake this morning just before 2 AM. KING 5 reported that the fire started in a couch. There were no injuries.
