The Nation : Philadelphia Fund Grows

May 22, 1985

Philadelphia has received more than $1.2 million in donations so far to rebuild a neighborhood ravaged by fire in the police battle against the radical cult MOVE, Mayor W. Wilson Goode announced. The federal Department of Housing and Urban Development has pledged an additional $1 million, and Goode will ask the City Council to allocate $500,000 from the city's general fund. Goode planned also to seek $5 million from the state. About 250 persons were left homeless May 13 after the massive blaze destroyed 53 row houses and severely damaged eight others. Seven adults and four children living in the MOVE house died in the fire.
