Help the Vicitms of the Illinois Tornadoes!
As everybody knows, at least 14 tornadoes tore throughout Illinois on Sunday. There were millions of people in the path of this system, most were spared. The tornadoes left a path of damage and destruction. For those of us who were fortunate enough to avoid damage, it's time to help out our neighbors who were not. We're putting together a supply drive and will be delivering items this weekend.
We're being told that the main things needed at this time are plastic bins, household cleaning supplies and personal toiletries. We've set up a couple of collection points in North Aurora.
Items can be dropped off at the following locations:
- North Aurora Police Department, 200 S. Lincolnway (Rt. 31), between 7am and 10pm
- Fox Valley Physician Services, 23 N. Lincolnway, between 8am and 5:30pm
- North Aurora Smiles, 1133 Oak Street, between 8am and 5pm.
We'll be collecting items until 5:00 on Friday afternoon and then preparing them for delivery over the weekend.
Please help us pass the word around and help out some neighbors in need. For questions or information, please contact Chris Faber at 630-551-8683 or visit www.christopherfaber.com.
