My friend for over 30 years and her family has suffered an unexpected loss in the last couple weeks. The flood in Marseilles Illinois is the worst flooding there in almost 100 years..barges hit the Illinois river dam and plugged the dam causing the town to fill like a bathtub. They had 45 minutes to evacuate everything... They got some things moved upstairs..but they didn't expect the entire basement and house to fill with water. They lost pretty much everything. We got a good start on gutting the house while I was there this weekend, and a disaster team called Team Rubicon came in and really helped clean out the rest like superheroes! But right now they have lost everything, and they are picking up the pieces while insurance is fighting the claim. They have had overwhelming support from local agencies and complete strangers. But right now they are hurting for gas money, new clothes, and maybe a warm room to stay in for a night. Colleens son is autistic and is lucky to be enrolled in a school to fit his needs. It's not close by and any help for the family to get things back to normal would be amazing. They can get back on track and hopefully you can help one of the best people and family Ive ever known. Just a couple bucks can help! Thank you from me and Colleen "Weinie" Grabow and family. :)
