Flood Relief for Southwest Iowa
Two months after their initial evacuation many families remain displaced and have uncertainties about whether they will be able to return to their homes. Some clean-up has begun, but much remains under water. They continue to have significant needs and we would like to offer another opportunity to help our “neighbors” out.
The following is a list of current needs:
Trash Bags – Any Size
Zip Lock Baggies
5# Bags of Potatoes
Boxed mixes, such as brownie and cookie mixes, that residents can make for lunches.
Sandwich meats and bread are needed, but must be purchased fresh, so cash donations would be greatly appreciated.
The center has served 100,502 meals as of May 14, 2019 in the two months of displacement.
We will plan on taking these supplies on May 28, 2019. If you could please bring your donations to the Madrid E-Free Church on May 27th between 9:00 am and 12:00 pm, we will be there with the trailer. If that does not work as it is a holiday, please call us at (515)460-2469 and we will make arrangements to fit your schedule.
Thank you for your willingness as a community to help out these neighbors with great needs!
