Helping the Lake Township and Dundee Tornado Victims

Like many people, I am shocked at the extent of damage that killer tornadoes wrought upon Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan Saturday night and Sunday morning. I thought I might use this post to spread the word about the need for donations and how people might help the tornado victims.

If you would like to volunteer to help tornado victims in Dundee, please call the Dundee Municipal Offices at 734-529-3430. People who want to donate to the Monroe County chapter of the Red Cross should call 734-289-1481.

Due to the outpouring of donated food and clothing by residents of Northwest Ohio in the first two days after the tragedy, the Red Cross no longer requests donations of goods. The organization is now seeking monetary donations for the tornado victims in Millbury and other affected areas in Ohio. People can make donations at All Saints Church, 628 Lime City Rd. in Rossford or by visiting the Greater Toledo Red Cross website. Concerned area residents can make monetary donations at the Red Cross regional offices, which is located in the Westgate area at 3100 W. Central Ave.

Man, I saw this on French Network News yesterday, they had footage of the twisters and interviews with people.... and then started to look at locations on the internet...
I lived outside of Lake Township when I first moved to Ohio....
Then I freaked when I saw the path of the tornado in Michigan...Some of my closest and oldest friends from the area are in the general path up to Luna Pier! I'm trying to contact them by phone and the internet...

I called today, 6/14, and was politely rejected. :-( Apparently they have all the help they need? If you have any other phone numbers for organizations in the area that might be more receptive, please repost? Thank you,
