Recently the Ilwaco Fire Hall burned, destroying a lot of equipment, supplies and memories. Many concerned citizens have pitched in to help in this recovery, contributing manpower and resources to put the Ilwaco Fire Department back in business at their own site.

Our American Red Cross office was located in that building as well. We have lost equipment and supplies, in addition to our site for community training classes. Harbors Home Health and Hospice has donated a replacement computer for our use, but we have a host of other equipment and supplies to replace.

Can you help us in our recovery? Any gift amount would be greatly appreciated at this time. We are now looking for a new site for storage of emergency response supplies and will need to rebuild that inventory and restore our response capability by replacing other lost equipment.

As we have always done, our volunteers plan to be among the first responders when any unforeseen disaster, fire or flood strikes in Pacific County. Will you join us in our effort to restore our ability to fulfill our mission locally? We are deeply grateful for your partnership in this way. Please send your gift to: American Red Cross, P.O. Box 186, Ilwaco, WA 98624. You can also call me at 360-430-1657 or my e-mail is
