In the face of this ongoing tragedy, many individuals, families, corporations, and volunteers, without hesitation, stepped forward and provided support to those impacted by the fire. The incredible generosity, compassion, and consideration shown by these individuals, families, corporations, and volunteers made a huge, demonstrable difference and truly were appreciated. They provided much needed hope and light during the gloom of the disaster. To these people, these families, these corporations, these volunteers, a heartfelt thank you on behalf of the former residents of Citadel Mews West. You made the difference.
