Lutheran Church Charities Disaster Response Continues to Serve Families Hit Hardest by Tornado in Elgin, Illinois
On Wednesday, July 12, the Northern Illinois District was struck by fourteen tornadoes within a three-hour time period. The only EF-2 tornado was in South Elgin, which heavily damaged a neighborhood.
On Friday, July 21, Kevin Krage, Bill Pietsch, and Larry Zagorski from Lord of Life, LaFox L.E.R.T. team returned to this hard-hit neighborhood to cut and remove a very large downed tree from a homeowner’s yard with a bobcat. The homeowner was very appreciative of their assistance, as he could have never cut or removed this on his own. He couldn’t believe how quickly and willingly the L.E.R.T. team completed the work.
If you are so moved, please donate to the LCC Disaster Response Fund or LCC Equipment Maintenance & Fuel Expense Fund so that we may continue to show the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those suffering and in need.
Please pray for all of the communities affected by these devastating storms, including the LCC Disaster Response volunteers and staff that help during the recovery process.
LCC works in coordination with LCMS Disaster Response national and local districts of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.
