Pullman’s Community Action Center has asked the public for donations to help the residents affected by last Tuesday’s fire at a Maple Street apartment complex.

The fire displaced eight people and the estimated $400,000 in damage will take approximately six months to repair, according to a CAC news release.

The CAC owns the apartment complex, and needs donations of household items such as mattresses, bedding, towels, eating utensils and other furniture for those affected, the release said.

While the group first sought to find a place for the victims to stay, they are now looking to help replace what they lost, said Kim Donohue, CAC Deputy Director.

“Our first priority has been to get everyone safe, temporary housing,” she said. “Getting their homes refurnished will be one less thing for the tenants to worry about during this crisis.”

The CAC is located at 350 Fairmont Rd., and donations will be accepted every weekday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., according to the release. The group said they will also accept cash donations.
