Letter: 'Free' Store for Fire Victims

Malibu Times - 02-17


A version of this letter was shared to the Malibu City Council at its Feb. 11 meeting. After volunteering countless hours as co-manager at the Izzy’s Donation Center above Café Habana I, now more than ever, see there is such a desperate need for a continuation and a permanent location for our fire victims to “free shop.” I am hoping that the current Izzy’s Donation Center can transition into this new location as a “free shopping” space for fire victims and those in need. Those not in that category would be paying customers and this would become a lucrative venue to compensate the city for expenses involved.
