It has been just over a week since a line of strong storms and tornadoes caused damage to several Illinois communities. As the residents of these cities continue to recover, there are several ways to offer support and aid in relief efforts.
The Starved Rock Country Community Foundation continues to accept cash donations that will assist with disaster relief in LaSalle County. For more information visit their website at http://srccf.org/donate/disaster-relief-fund/ or call 815-252-2906.
The Southern Illinois Community Foundation is also collecting donations through its regional disaster fund to assist with clean-up in the communities of Ava, Vergennes, Elkville, and Dowell. Visit http://www.sicf.org/ for more information on how to donate.
The American Red Cross, which often is one of the first relief organizations on the ground after a disaster, collects donations throughout the year to aid in disaster relief. Visit http://www.redcross.org/ to find out more.
