The Chastain Park Conservancy has set up an online fundraising campaign to raise money to rebuild its headquarters after a Friday fire destroyed the Quonset hut that served in that role.
The conservancy is a nonprofit that maintains and protects the Buckhead park.
In an email to supporters and the media Tuesday, the organization asked for donations to help rebuild the conservancy’s office, through a new Restore Chastain campaign. The conservancy has set up a Go Fund Me webpage to raise $50,000. As of Wednesday morning, it had generated $8,545.
Rosa McHugh, the conservancy's executive director, said there were no injuries and all the animals living on its grounds, including chickens, a goat and a cat, were rescued. But she also said the building is a total loss.
