THE STORY:

On Sunday night, a woman who struggles immensely with mental illness, shattered two windows and damaged two others at Americana by throwing rocks at the building. This is not a hate crime and we have worked with Centerstone and LMPD to make sure she is connected to resources for help. 

A few months ago, the same person broke four additional windows in the building and the costs of these damages have been very difficult for us. We are asking our friends and advocates to help offset these unforeseen costs so that our programs do not see any cut backs. 

It cost $225 to board up the broken windows for safety and security. 

It will cost $2095 to repair/replace all four windows. 

Any additional funds will be used to make the building a safer place (security camera repair, background checks for volunteers, etc). 

Thank you for making the services Americana offers possible. 4801 Southside Drive is a welcoming and safe place with more than 5,000 people coming through our doors. It takes care, maintenance, and love to keep Americana's 55,000 square feet up and running and we appreciate your support to make that possible. 

(We also want to thank the LMPD officers for handling the situation with compassion!)
