The Salvation Army serves Marco Polo residents and first responders


The Salvation Army is providing services such as rental or lodging assistance, food, clothing, and emotional support to those affected by the Marco Polo condominium fire this past weekend. Families are forced to find places to live as building inspectors assess the damage and allow them back into their units to retrieve personal belongings. A few families have no choice but to remain in their damaged units until they are assisted with housing alternatives.

In coordination with community partners such as Royal Kitchen, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Aloha Harvest, The Salvation Army provides meals to affected residents, first responders that continue to guide assessment teams, and building staff that work around the clock in response to the fatal fire.



“We just want to help those in need and provide solutions to those families that have lost all of their belongings"



A total of 200 units at the Marco Polo condominium were damaged from the fire. “We just want to help those in need and provide solutions to those families that have lost all of their belongings. Some of them don’t have anyone to turn to and we want to be there for them,” said Anna Stone, The Salvation Army’s Pathway of Hope Director, who was on site the day after the fire, providing supplies and spiritual support to residents in the shelter set up by the American Red Cross. “The community support is great so far with the meals served each day.”
