Thanks to the moms at Work It: A Blog for Working Moms for sharing ways to help with flood relief in the Midwest. Iowa Governor Chet Culver recently told CNN that flood-water damage is an estimated $10 billion -- yes, billion with a B. Not only is that figure a premature guess, it does not include damage in Illinois or Missouri.
Here are a few ways to help:
- A local foundation established a Coralville/Iowa City flood relief fund
- Online giving to University of Iowa
- As always the Red Cross is on-site and in control.
- LTV Mom will remind everyone about Farm Aid's Family Farm Disaster Fund.
And as stated on Work It, "I'm sure on the ground volunteers are much needed, but close-proximity is essential. So give online if you can."
