WAYNESVILLE, Mo. -- The American Red Cross opened a Multi-Agency Relief Center (MARC) in Waynesville Tuesday for victims of flooding there last week.
The center, located at Westside Baptist Church (801 Historic Route 66 West), will be open each day through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
People affected by flooding will find several agencies there to provide one-stop shop assistance for flood victims.
Some of the agencies offering help will be Convoy of Hope, the Salvation Army, the Red Cross and state and local human service agencies.
Meanwhile, a fund has been established by the Meramec Regional Community Foundation for flood relief in Pulaski County.
All donations made to the fund will be dedicated to flood relief efforts in the area. Proceeds will address individual and community needs created by the flood through established, local non-profit groups, religious organizations, schools and county and local governments of Pulaski County.
The Community foundation of the Ozarks is making a grant of $25,000 to the fun as one of its 44-affiliate foundations. All donations made to the fund are tax deductible and can be made online or by check.
Anyone looking to donate online can do so by visiting CFO's website and are asked to enter "Pulaski County Flood Relief Fund" in the field for the fund or program you are donating to.
For those wishing to donate by check, checks should be payable to Pulaski County Flood Relief Fund, and mailed or dropped off to Meramec Regional Community Foundation, 4 Industrial Dr., St. James, Mo. 65559.
