Communities all across the Midwest are experiencing devastating tornadoes, flooding, and severe storms. The AmeriCorps St. Louis Emergency Response Team has been requested to support various local disasters in Missouri and Illinois, through volunteer management, leading field crews, removing debris, and other capacities. So far in 2019, our Members have served locally in Clarksville, MO (flood), Jefferson City, MO (tornado), and Calhoun County, IL (flood). We anticipate more responses throughout the spring and summer.
Since these disasters are not federally funded, all expenses during these responses will come out of our own funds. If you would like to support AmeriCorps St. Louis during this time, please consider making a monetary donation. Every little bit helps! Thank you!
