Thanks to all for assisting West Town

To the editor:

This community’s response to the terrible fire at West Town Village has moved and heartened the residents of West Town and its manager, Providence Housing Development Corporation. We owe debts of gratitude to the many, many people who came to the aide of the residents of West Town during and after the fire. They are too numerous to name individually, but include: the Henrietta firefighters and emergency technicians who responded to the fire, ensuring that there were no serious casualties; the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Team that helped the residents with emergency housing, medicine and other necessities; the Catholic parishes, J.P. Morgan Chase Foundation and others who have responded to the fire with generous contributions to help the residents rebuild their lives; and those others who helped residents with moving and packing and provided other support during the weeks following the fire, including management, staff and volunteers from the following organizations:

Catholic Charities; Catholic Family Center Eldersource; Diamond Packaging; Henrietta Senior Community Center; LeCesse Construction; Pastoral Center of the Diocese of Rochester; Pizza Corner; Pizza Hut in Henrietta; Providence Housing Development Corporation; RDA Container; St. Stephen’s Ministry of St. Louis Parish; SWBR Architects; Boy Scouts of America Troops 153, 332 and 350; the Girl Scouts of Genesee Valley Troops 162 and 412; Hylan Drive Wegmans and Chase-Pitkin; Tim Hortons-Henrietta; Tony Pepperoni Pizza; and Wal-Mart Henrietta store.

I wish to send a heartfelt thank you to everyone who provided help and support to Providence and the residents of West Town Village during this difficult time.

Maggie Bringewatt
