The Story

This fund has been set up to help the individual workers who have permanently lost their jobs due to the fire in the Old Market. Over night, these individuals lost the ability to earn a living and still have bills to pay. As such, the Old Market community has set up this page to support the displaced workers through crowd funding. The more money we raise, the more we can help these workers until they have permanent solutions. Every little bit helps! We tip our hats to those businesses who have opened their doors to displaced employees.

The money will be placed into the Old Market Business Association's bank account, into a protected fund. These funds are controlled by the board members who are all local business owners with nothing but the best intentions. The funds will be made available to the affected people ASAP.

This fundraiser is now closed. A HUGE thank you to everyone who kindly opened their hearts and their wallets to help our neighbors in the Old Market. All of the funds were channeled through the Old Market Business Association (OMBA) and have now been divided up and distributed to the affected businesses.

Many thanks,
David Kerr

Hey everyone. As you continue making money every week, spare a thought for those who cannot. Remember that you can donate more than once :) You don't need to donate big. Drop $5 in. If we all did that, we would collectively make a huge difference.

We are over the $7,000 mark! Let's keep pushing forward. The sooner we can hit the $10,000 the sooner we can pay out the affected people.
