I think it would be great for the chapter to find a way to contribute to the clean up.

Greetings, Mark;

Thanks for your caring message and concern. this has definitely been, and I imagine will be at least for a short while, a difficult time for our city and loved ones. Ironic to say that Federal Hill has been quiet given its reputation for festive gatherings. I share your concern and hope to be part of rebuilding in whatever creative ways might present themselves, both our Federation and our community.

Take care and be safe.
