Brevard Rd. Fire ReliefBy
Parker Sloan, Grey Nelson and Adam Bowers lost their home and possessions on Friday evening in a tragic house fire on Brevard Road in West Asheville. See the WLOS video report here.
They lost their clothes, beds, shoes, furniture, kitchen supplies, bicycles, photographs… Have a look around you right now, and imagine it all burned to ruin. It’s time for our community to come together to help these three get back on their feet.
You can make a monetary donation here. The Bar of Soap, 333 Merrimon Ave., is accepting non-monetary donations of food, clothing and other items.
We’re also hosting a benefit for the trio this Friday, March 2nd, at the First Congregational United Church of Christ at 20 Oak Street in downtown Asheville from 5-7pm. Open your hearts, wallets and checkbooks as Parker, Grey and Adam need all of the support and financial help they can get.
The boys sizes are:
Adam Bowers: M shirt, 11.5 shoe, 32-34×32 pant
Parker Sloan: L shirt, 11 shoe, 36×32 pant
Grey Nelson: M shirt, 10-10.5 shoe, 32×30-32 pant
Parker is a student, musician, organizer, and land planner. Grey, also a musician, works with Sundance Power Systems. Adam makes his living in music and entertainment, working with Asheville’s Lyric Opera, and he lost seven instruments and the use of his car in the fire. All three men are staying with friends and taking it one day at a time.
