About 2,000 visit Sikeston storm resource center

Saturday, February 14, 2009

SIKESTON, Mo. -- About 2,000 people went through Sikeston's multiagency resource center the three days it was set up at the Clinton Building.

Those touring the fair were attracted to several booths, said Joel Evans, emergency management director for Scott County. Out of the 20 or so booths, the most popular seemed to be the Salvation Army, which gave out $50 vouchers for food, medical and gas expenses, the Red Cross, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, one that gave away blankets and one that gave food stamp replacement vouchers.

Anyone still needing assistance may call the United Way at 211.
