A very big thank you to all who have responded. It is wonderful to be a part of a community that cares. The best way to help is still to send funds. This can be done by going to the Adventist Community Services website, www.communityservices.org, or by donating through your local church. Mark your offerings for Adventist Community Services (ACS) Disaster Relief.
In order to be able to help in a disaster, FEMA, the Illinois Conference, and our insurance provider, Adventist Risk Management, require volunteers to take a Donations Operations class.
Please continue to pray for the victims and their families, the emergency personnel, and all those volunteering their time and efforts to help those in time of need. Your prayers are greatly appreciated.
