Late in the evening of September 13th, a devastating fire broke out in downtown Oxford that destroyed multiple businesses and homes, displacing over 90 people. Since those early morning hours, SILO staff, board members and volunteers have been working tirelessly to support those who lost everything. SILO mobilized immediately, purchasing new clothes for all of the residents, filling their immediate needs.

Now our focus shifts to finding affordable housing for each household and helping them settle into their new (empty) homes. If you would like to support SILO in continuing this work, please click here to donate.

If you would like to donate directly to those affected by the fire, please indicate that on the note line of your gift.

A special thank you to Dave and Kelly from Keda Creative for helping us create this video.
