Disaster Recovery Fund

On December 10, 2021, tornadoes touched down across the St. Louis metro area, damaging property and causing loss of life. Our hearts go out to those impacted, and we stand beside the community now and throughout the recovery process.


The needs of those impacted by the storms can change quickly and resources are required in order to best respond. Your donation to the Disaster Recovery Fund supports recovery efforts in our community for impacted households, such as temporary housing and shelter, unmet basic needs, long-term recovery, and other emerging needs.  


100% of donations raised through the Disaster Recovery Fund will support the long-term recovery needs of impacted households throughout our region.


If you were impacted and need non-emergency help: Please dial 2-1-1 from a cell or 1-800-427-4626 from a landline phone (TTY 1-866-385-6525) to get connected to a trained specialist.
