Georgia Coffee Shop Tries to Rebuild After Devastating Fire

The owners of a Griffin, Ga., coffee shop that was destroyed by an electrical fire this year are calling for volunteers of all kinds to help with rebuilding efforts.

Here’s a plea from Safehouse Coffee:

Safehouse is more than a coffee shop and roastery. It is a community center, open to all local groups and clubs. It is a business incubator for local entrepreneurs as well as a pro-bono training center for young people wanting to learn the marketable skills of the specialty coffee industry. Safehouse hosts multiple faith-based meetings and classes and offers space to municipal government committees and subcommittee meetings whenever called upon.

When the owner of the building saw the public outcry after the fire, he was moved to donate the building on the condition that volunteers would do the finishing work of reconstruction. We need your help to make this happen. Whether your skills are in construction, finish carpentry, painting, or you are just willing to lend a helping hand in labor, please join us in rebuilding this invaluable resource for our town.

The group has put together the following video to help build support:
