Station Fire fund to distribute $300,000 in Jan. and Feb.
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

(Providence-AP) -- Managers of The Station Nightclub Relief Fire Fund say they expect to spend 300-thousand dollars on those affected by the fire this month and next.

The amount seems to reflect an increase in spending by the fund, which disbursed less than 50-thousand dollars in December.

Fund chairman Reverend John Holt says the extra spending is due to the anguish families are feeling leading up to the one-year anniversary of the blaze.

Money will be offered, among other things, for airfare to relatives attending ceremonies marking the anniversary.

The fire was on February 20th in West Warwick. One hundred people died and more than 200 were injured.

The fund had about one-point-one (m) million dollars as of the end of last year. ItÔŅĹs jointly managed by the Rhode Island Foundation and United Way of Rhode Island.
