Edmonds Chamber awards second WISH Fund grant to Plum Tree Plaza fire victim   

The Edmonds Chamber Foundation Wednesday announced that another business that suffered damage during an arson fire at Edmonds’ Plum Tree Plaza has received $1,000 through its WISH Fund disaster recovery grant program.

The early morning three-alarm fire that broke out at the Plum Tree Plaza Sept. 11 engulfed and destroyed several businesses, and all the remaining businesses received smoke and water damage, with a total of 14 businesses impacted.

The Wonton Noodle House, which suffered smoke damage and the complete loss of their inventory, is the second Plum Tree Plaza business to receive a WISH Fund grant. Qin Xi’an Noodles, which was heavily damaged in the fire, received a $1,000 grant earlier this month.

“The Edmonds Chamber Foundation is happy to be able to award more WISH Fund grants to those in need.” said Lillyan Hendershot, president of the Edmonds Chamber Foundation board.

“Thanks to the generous support of the South County Firefighter Foundation and individual donations the WISH Fund, we are now able to provide up to six grants to businesses affected by this fire.” said Greg Urban, President & CEO of the Edmonds Chamber. “We still need your help to raise another $8,000 to support every business in the plaza. Donations to the Edmonds Chamber Foundation (501c3) and the WISH Fund are tax deductible.”

  1. We are so glad & thankful to all the caring members of the Edmonds Chamber Foundation who are helping all the 14 businesses & the community so impacted by the arson. A Big Thank You to all of you, Members of the Edmonds Chamber Foundation! Dear caring People of Edmonds, please continue to support the WISH Fund to help out!


  2. Glad to see Wonton Noodle House on the receiving list here. We don’t know the owner but Anna is our regular server. A very casual Cantonese noodle house, affordable prices, and usually filled with Asian people~ a good indicator of authenticity. I hope they get back in business quickly!
