THE SHELTER IS CLOSING BY 1:30 PM ON SUNDAY, JUNE 21, DUE TO MOST SHELTER RESIDENTS HEADING HOME.
(Thanks to WOOD TV 8 for the photo.)
We had 130 people stay overnight at the shelter our amazing team of volunteers set up at Ionia Middle School. Most people have headed home by now (thanks to the sad news from Public Safety that their cars are stranded till Wednesday), but any clients requiring further Red Cross assistance may call (616) 456-8661.
Thank you to our over 35 local volunteers who responded and helped run the shelter! We could not have pulled this off without you!
Also, thank you to all our local media, including the awesome staff at B-93, for helping us spread the word! (We even got a call from the ABC News headquarters in New York – the story went national!)
Want to help shoulder the costs of our emergency services to the community?
