EPS COMMUNITY

FIRE RELIEF FUND

For the countless EPS employees who have asked about how to assist those families impacted by Tuesday’s four-alarm fire at a multi-use building on Broadway, we have an important update to share from the city. 

Donations are being accepted via Everett Fire Victims Fund. Donations should be dropped off in Mayor Carlo DeMaria’s Office in City Hall. Clothing, shoes, winter apparel, and gift cards will all be gratefully accepted. If you would like to make a financial contribution, checks should be made payable to the Everett Fire Victims Fund. 

The drive will assist the residents who were displaced as a result of the fire, as well as employees of Oliveira’s restaurant, which occupies the first floor of the building.

Additionally, the EPS held a Jeans Day fundraiser today, and we will hold another one on Friday, November 12th. All proceeds will be directed to the Fire Victims Fund. Please give your $5 donation to your building’s Administrative Assistant on the 12th.
