    • Defiance Tornado Damage Recap and Continuing Volunteer Efforts - UPDATED DEC. 15

      December 13, 2021

      By Dianne Sudbrock

      UPDATED 12/15/21: Another coordinated volunteer day is planned for Thursday, Dec. 16 and possibly Friday, Dec. 17 to help collect and remove debris. Volunteers can meet at 9 a.m. or shortly thereafter at the corner of Hwy. F and 94 to be assigned to a location to help pick up debris, trim trees, and separate metal from wood, etc. Wear appropriate clothing, gloves, etc. and bring your own tools/chainsaws and supplies. Work may involve picking up trash, removing nails/screws, carrying wood and metal, sawing trees, carrying and piling brush, etc.  NOTE: Hwy. F remains closed to outside traffic. You must check in at Hwy. 94 and F to gain access.



      UPDATED 12/13/21 AT 8:45 P.M.  VOLUNTEER HELP AND ITEM DONATIONS ON HOLD FOR NOW
      At this time, no more food and drink items are needed at New Melle Fire Station #1.

      Response has been overwhelming and more than enough food and drink items have been donated to meet the current needs of the storm victims. The biggest needs now are probably cash or gift cards for meals or specific personal needs as most of them are staying in hotels or with friends/relatives.
