Flood Impact Lingers: Bull Creek Families Still in Need

Families need cooked food, places to sleep

BULL CREEK VILLAGE, Mo. - While water levels have drastically subsided in recent weeks, many of the residents of Bull Creek Village are living in tents, as their flood damaged homes are no longer safe to occupy.

According to Emergency Manager Jim Fullmer, donations of clothes and furniture have been coming in for the residents of Bull Creek Village since the heavy rainfall ended. But at this time, those donations are being left untouched as residents have no place to store them.

Fullmer, who lost two homes in the flood, shares the village is still without power. And without power residents can’t cook food or even take a shower.

So how can you help? Fullmer asks anyone who can to deliver a hot meal in the evening or a bagged lunch during the day. If you have a spare bedroom or a hotel room vacancy you can donate so they can have a roof over their head while they sleep. Also anyone who has a shower they would be OK with someone using to get cleaned up for work.

Fullmer shares The Salvation Army, the Red Cross and Christian Action Ministries have all been out to help, but they have all been pulled away to other emergencies.

If you can help or would like to make a monetary donation to for food or a hotel for a family, you can contact Fullmer at 417-230-6472 to set that up.
