On May 8th, a massive fire at a Westland strip mall claimed the life of firefighter Brian Woehlke. The blaze destroyed a restaurant, and damaged many other businesses including The WestlandSt. Vincent de Paul thrift store. 90% of the store sustained smoke damage and it will take months before it will be ready to open again.
Officials with St. Vincent de Paul are asking for help and donations to get the store running again. Donations of furniture, clothing and appliances can be dropped off at any of the other 14 thrift store locations and these partner locations:
· Huntington Cleaners, 26822 Coolidge Highway, Huntington Woods, MI 48070
· Wesch Cleaners, 33633 Woodward Ave, Birmingham, MI 48009
· 41800 Executive Drive, Harrison Township, MI 48045
