Communities from Washington, IL to Kokomo, IN, have been impacted. Week of Compassion is currently monitoring the situation and working with regional offices to assess needs. We have been in touch with Regional Ministers and local church pastors and will continue to respond as needed. As always, Week of Compassion and our partners are committed to Long Term Recovery in communities affected by disasters and plan to respond in the days to come.
We give thanks to the God who calls us to respond to chaos with hope, peace, and compassion, and we give thanks for all of you who partner with us to minister to those affected. Please consider putting your Compassion into Action by responding to needs in Illinois and Indiana.
