On Saturday 1/31/2015, a 4-alarm fire broke out in the Western Addition, in the Alamo Square neighborhood, at McAllister and Scott, and affected 17 units in four residential buildings.  At least 25 people have been displaced, including families with small children.

    This is wonderful that you’re doing this, but have you considered doing a GoFundMe campaign? The folks helping raise funds for the Mission/22nd St fire seem to be having great success in a very short amount of time with this.
