Immanuel Lutheran donates to the Red Cross for Crosstown storm victims

Monday, October 23, 2006

After being on the Crosstown tornado scene clearing debris, providing extra hands and lending moral support, students at Immanuel Lutheran School followed up with a large donation of supplies including toys, necessities and school and personal hygiene items to the Red Cross Southeast Missouri Chapter. The items will be given to families affected by the storm.

"This kind donation is part of an important step to comfort families and help aim them toward the road to recovery," said Brett Nelson, development specialist of the Red Cross Southeast Missouri Chapter. "Now we face the duty of funding our endeavors and we are in deep need of monetary donations."

Individuals in need of assistance should contact the American Red Cross Southeast Missouri Chapter at 335-9471. All American Red Cross disaster assistance is free, made possible by voluntary donations of time and money from the American people. To help the victims of this disaster and thousands of other disasters across the country each year, financial gifts may be given to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, which enables the Red Cross to provide shelter, food, counseling and other assistance to those in need. Call Brett Nelson at 335-9471, or write Southeast Missouri Chapter, American Red Cross, 2430 Myra Drive, Cape Girardeau, Mo. 63703.
