Food, showers and shelter available at IVCC

Posted by wlpo on April 19, 2013

Neighborhoods have been evacuated in Marseilles, Utica, Streator, and Ottawa.  If you were forced from your home by flooding, you’ll find food, a place to sleep and showers at IVCC’s gymnasium.

The Red Cross opened the shelter Thursday morning but it’s only been used by a few people according to director Sarah Stasik.

Area restaurants have donated food.  20-30 volunteers have been keeping it open around the clock.  It will be open at least through Saturday.
