Catholic Charities of Sallisaw is asking those wishing to donate to bring their items during business hours only. An early morning fire on Friday destroyed the large donation dumpster outside the 409 N. Adams office.
The agency is open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., said Pam Wemhaner, and she said donations are still being accepted. For more information, call Catholic Charities at (918) 775-6111.
An anonymous 911 call around 4:30 a.m. tipped off the Sallisaw Fire Department to the blaze, which was confined to the dumpster. There was nothing salvageable when the fire was extinguished.
Sallisaw Fire Chief Anthony Armstrong said Tuesday that Wemhaner told him the dumpster had been full the night before the fire, but he noted that the location’s lack of security cameras and few if any leads currently have the investigation at a standstill.
Anyone with information regarding the fire is asked to contact the Sallisaw Police or Fire Department.
