Jun. 16 /CSRwire/ - OJAI,CA,. - June 16, 2008 - Nourish America needs your help. Nourish America's partners inIowa are urgently requesting nutritional support for evacuees and emergency workers affected by the state-wide flooding disaster.
The situation is tragic. At this time, more than 36,000 people have been
evacuated from 23 Iowa cities and rural county areas. In fact, 83 out of 99 of Iowa's counties have been declared state disaster areas. Ten of these counties are under mandatory or voluntary evacuations. Experts estimate that flood victims and evacuees will require support for at least two weeks.
Nourish America activated last week its Disaster Relief Program to support these families and emergency workers during this difficult time. It has partnered with United Way, Catholic Worker and the United Methodist Committee on Relief. Will you join us?
