Outpouring of donations for Brookhaven fire victims, City to head up distribution
Julie Cusmano Silber reached out to the Brookhaven community for donations to help displaced families as a result of a large apartment fire that took place on January 16th in the Marquis Terrace apartments on Buford Hwy. Silber’s family owns Metropolitan Artifacts Architectural Antiques in Chamblee and volunteered their store to be a collection point for household goods, clothing and personal items to help the fire victims.
Wednesday morning, the effort was handed over to the City of Brookhaven who will take all of the donated goods to Briarwood Rec. Center where they will be sorted and stored. The city will allow residents who lost everything in the fire to come by Briarwood and collect items they need. Ref: Trey Bento
