Flood Relief - How you can help

Flooding in Central Illinois is reaching disastrous levels, and the American Red Cross in Central Illinois could REALLY use your help providing relief and assistance. There are many opportunities throughout the area, including making financial donations and volunteering.

An immediate need is the ability to cover expenses in delivering aid where it's needed most. You can donate to the Red Cross by visiting www.redcross.org/donate or calling 1-800-RED-CROSS. You can also text “REDCROSS” to 90999, and a $10 donation will be made to Red Cross Disaster Relief.

If you're interested in volunteering, you can call these local chapters:

  • Peoria - 309-677-7272
  • Canton - 309-647-2040
  • Peru - 815-223-0922
  • Macomb - 309-837-1594

Thank you for praying with us for those affected by the flooding. Those prayers are so important. And, if you can make a small donation or give just a few hours to help make sandwiches or assemble comfort kits, you could make a huge difference. Recovery from this disaster is just beginning and the Red Cross says it will be an extremely long process for Central Illinois. Your involvement...now and later...is crucial. Thank you!!!
