Gifford Tornado Relief

Tornado Recovery Efforts Continue in Gifford

As cleanup continues… money is the most-needed item for tornado relief. The Champaign Country Sheriff’s Department is warning to be watchful for scammers. Avoid donations door-to-door and donate directly to United Way, Red Cross, or Gifford State Bank:

- Gifford State Bank has started the Gifford Tornado Relief Fund. Donations can be made at any Gifford State Bank branch, or mail a check to Gifford State Bank, Box 400, Gifford, IL 61847.  Specify Gifford Tornado Relief Fund with your donation.

- The United Way of Champaign County has created the Gifford Area Relief Fund. 100% of donations will be used to support local nonprofits providing disaster relief (these include the American Red Cross, the Community Service Center of Northern Champaign County, and the Salvation Army).

- Online donations can be made to: www.uwayhelps.org/Gifford – please note Gifford in the notes box.

WATER:  Donations of bottled water are needed and will be accepted from at United Way of Champaign County – 404 W Church St, Champaign: 8:30am-5:00pm M-F.  United Way, in partnership with This is It Furniture and local businesses, will transport the water to Gifford.
