Cedar Rapids Storm Damage Response

Many Iowa communities were devastated by the powerful storms on Monday that left catastrophic damage in their wake. We encourage our friends, neighbors, and community to come together to provide mutual aid.

Donations will be collected throughout the weekend and can be dropped off in front of the Decorah Chick Hatchery in downtown Decorah. Donations will be accepted until 4:00 on Sunday.

Stevenson Tree Care is planning a trip to the Cedar Rapids area to assist in storm damage cleanup.

Items will be donated to a local Cedar Rapids Storm Response Group to be distributed to those in need.

Many people have been without power since the storm and may not get it for another week. Please keep that in mind when choosing items (especially food) to donate.

Please see the list of needed supplies below (flashlights and coolers are most needed):

Flashlights with Batteries
Large Coolers
Charcoal
Extension Cords – High quality
Candles – Long lasting
Gas Cans with Fuel
Bar & Chain Oil for chainsaws
2-cycle/4-cycle Oil
Non-perishable Foods – granola bars, peanut butter, crackers
Heavy duty yard waste bags
Tarps for covering damaged homes
Generators

Individuals or businesses with questions can call 563-382-3810.
