Washington, Illinois Tornado Damage
Several Midwestern states were hit hard Sunday by deadly tornadoes and straight line winds. In Washington,Illinois, the death toll stands at 6, and the mayor states that as many as 500 homes were destroyed by the EF4 tornado that touched down there on Sunday afternoon. The need for assistance is great, and will continue for quite some time.
Portlight will be working with shelter operators and disability stakeholder organizations in Illinois and surrounding states, to serve the needs of people with disabilities. We will focus on shelter and transportation accessibility issues, and the provision of durable medical equipment as needed.
As always, your support makes our efforts possible, and we are so very grateful for it.
Thank you for your support and we will keep you updated on our progress
