Many of us shuddered when we learned the fate of Washington, Illinois and what the tornado left in its wake. We have lived it first-hand, through friends & relatives or worked on the emergency crews.

The emergency supply warehouse in Washington, IL is currently fully stock, but this will not last more than a few weeks. So the team at Franklin Display Group will help fill a fully-packed truck with donations from Boone County. One truck already made the journey this past Sunday and efforts are underway to continue bringing needed supplies as long as there is a need (estimated 2-months).

Donation information:

7:30 am-3:30 pm
