World Compassion Network has been heavily involved in the relief effort in southern Indiana. Initially WCN delivered our 70,000 watt generator to the New Washington Township fire department. The generator was used to provide electricity for the fire department’s search and rescue efforts as well and cooking , showers and battery charging for the victims and volunteers. The generator continues to serve clean up operations.
The WCN Disaster Relief Operations trailer was on site with equipment used for clearing debris for 4 days. Eight volunteers from our community under took the very difficult task using chain saws and other equipment to clear roads, and driveways as needed.
We delivered a semi load of Gatorade donated by Feed The Hungry to the distribution center in Scottsburg IN.
Perhaps the highlight of the effort was filling 53 foot trailer with relief supplies. The main effort was at the Warsaw Community High School where the students and the PTO provide volunteers to received donated supplies. The trailer was filled in three and a half days. Citizens of our community also dropped off supplies at other locations. Metzger Trucking delivered the supplies to the distribution center in Scottsburg In. Saturday morning. What a great effort by our community in such a short time.
