Efforts are gathering steam to help several local businesses recover from a devastating fire in downtown Jesup Monday night.
Most notably, the Jesup Downtown Development Authority has set up the Jesup DDA Fire Fund Account at SunTrust Bank. Donations can be made at SunTrust or at the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce.
The St. Joseph’s/Candler health system in Savannah donated $5,000 Thursday morning, DDA Chair Joe Ierardi said.
“The city attorney is going to have to tell us what we can and can’t use it for legally,” Ierardi said of the fund.
