On Tuesday, August 23rd, the Village of Brown Deer Village sent a communication called "River Place Apartments Fire Response and Ways to Help." Village management announced a multi-agency resource center (MARC) on Thursday, August 25 at Brown Deer Elementary School for people displaced by a fire the afternoon of Saturday, August 20th at a residential apartment complex in Brown Deer.
The announcement stated that the Brown Deer Foundation had set up a donation fund at Tri City National Bank called “Brown Deer Foundation Emergency Fund” as a way that community members or others could help.
Here is where the Juniors went into action! Less than seven hours later at the GFWC-Brown Deer Junior Woman's Club board meeting, the Board proposed a $250 contribution to the Emergency Fund. The contribution was approved by the membership on August 24th and the donation was dropped off at Tri City Bank on August 26th.
Helping the community in record time!
