A Go Fund Me fundraiser has been started by San Juan Island Chamber of Commerce to help the businesses damaged by the April 7 fire in Friday Harbor.
San Juan County Economic Development Council Director Victoria Compton said, "We're working to find additional emergency funding from Commerce, the County and the Town, to start the work of rebuilding the heart of Friday Harbor."
The EDC will set up a grant application process, once they know where the greatest need is, and provide funding to those most affected by fire losses.
