Many are wondering how they can assist those in our communities who have been directly affected by the recent flooding. Here is a list of needed items:
Monetary Donation: Individuals and families are urgently seeking food and shelter due to evacuations and substantial damage to their homes. Your monetary donation will assist with purchasing additional food items for our food bank as well as rent and utility assistance. In addition to urgent needs, we expect to see a significant increase in our client base due to this disaster for years to come. Even those who have not been directly affected by the floods, are in many cases experiencing a secondary impact. Your donation will be used to help with urgent as well as long term assistance. Any flood relief funding remaining, will be used to support EFAA’s Basic Needs and Shelter programs. To make a monetary donation, click here and indicate “flood” in the comments field.
