Members of the SCN Disaster Relief team arrived in the Fairdale, Illinois area on Wednesday night. We were given accommodations at the Loyola Retreat and Ecology Center in Woodstock, Illinois and also at the Walcamp Retreat Center in Kirkland, Illinois.
Thursday morning, SCNs Michaelette Pavlik, Denise Hibel, Luke Boiarski and SCNA Betty Hamilton assisted in the garage/warehouse where donations were being dropped off and separated. The other volunteers, Butch Cecil, Ronnie Mattingly, Jude Leake and Joe Clark assisted in the cleanup efforts in the small village of Fairdale.
Everyone has been very gracious and appreciative of the many volunteers who are giving their time and energy in this recovery effort.
