SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Three upcoming meetings will attempt to match victims of the deadly spring tornados who still have unmet needs with companies and organizations willing to provide help.
The Sullivan County Long-Term Tornado Recovery Coalition will organize the meetings which will not be open to the public. They are encouraging local organizations including churches, businesses, and non-profits to attend the meetings.
During each meeting case managers will present anonymous client’s fully vetted financial needs and list specific resources they need to move forward with recovery in the hopes that attending organizations will step up and pledge resources on an individual case basis.
“While we have conducted our work in a transparent, public manner, with open meetings and numerous forums, these Unmet Needs Tables cannot allow public attendance due to the need for client privacy,” the Director for the Recovery Coalition, Richard Payonk, explained. “Instead, the meetings are limited to only potential contributors from local organizations, as well as our Unmet Needs Committee that will then decide on allocations from the Help Sullivan Recover Fund.”
The three meetings will be held at the Sullivan City Hall at 110 N. Main Street on the following dates and times;
- Thursday, October 26 at 1:00 p.m.
- Thursday, November 16 at 1:00 p.m.
- Thursday, December 7 at 1:00 p.m.
Entry is limited to local organization representatives for the purpose of considering contributions. Members of the public wishing to contribute to the recovery effort can donate on-line here.
