This family has already lost their home, three outbuildings, two
vehicles and multiple pieces of large farm equipment, including
their combine, and is not able to harvest their corn until their
cornfield acreage is cleared of debris.
This is an official appeal to business and church leaders and
community members to help on Saturday to clear the remaining debris.
The need is urgent for volunteers with gloves and boots and a
heart to help this family that has been delayed in disaster recovery
because of the needed priority of the Beason homicides
All the needed equipment -- tractors and wagons -- and debris
disposal containers are arranged.
Drinks and meals will be provided for all of the workers.
The start time is 8:30, and the assembly point is the parking lot
at the safety complex in Lincoln at 8 a.m.
Volunteers should call the EMA office at 217-732-9491 or Rebecca
Van Nydeggen at the Salvation Army office at 217-732-7890 to confirm
