An account has been created at a local bank to accept donations to help pay for the funeral expenses of a homeless man who died last weekend.
William "Baldy" Floyd, 45, died late Sunday night after a fire spread through a camp near Mehring Way and Sixth Street downtown. Baldy was featured in a CityBeat cover story about homeless camps in September.
Donations of any amount can be made at any Fifth Third Bank branch location in Greater Cincinnati or online at www.53.com. The account number for donations is 9023556468.
