CLOVERDALE — Clean up efforts are progressing nicely but volunteers are still needed. Volunteers are requested to report to the gravel parking lot at the corner of Main and First streets at 9 a.m. today and 11 a.m. Sunday. Dress for the weather and bring rakes and work gloves if available.
The response to requests for donated clothing has been overwhelming and we are asking that no more be brought at this time.
Cloverdale residents are encouraged to visit the Oak Haven Care Center (donation site) to take advantage of the donated clothing, water, canned goods and baby items.
The Putnam County Long Term Recovery Task Force has established the Nov. 17 Recovery Fund. One hundred percent of monies donated to this Task Force remain local as the mission of the LTRTF is “placing recovery resources in the hands of those who need it most.”
Donations may be made at any Putnam County Huntington Bank or Fort Jennings State Bank. For a tax deductible donation, checks may be mailed to the Nov. 17 Recovery Fund at PO Box 472, Ottawa, OH 45875.
From Putnam County EMA:
Persons with homes impacted by the storms on Nov. 17 are asked to contact the Putnam County EMA office to report damages by calling 419-538-7315 by Wednesday.
