11/22 Thanks, everybody


Here are the items donated at Wrigley Field for victims of Sunday’s tornadoes that were distributed in Peoria, Ill. Thanks to everyone who chipped in.


WONDERFUL!! BEAUTIFUL!! Happy Thanksgiving to all!

I live in East Peoria and attend church in Washington. I was teaching Sunday School in the basement of our church one block East of the town square when the tornado hit. I had been warned by my phone, alerted the adults still upstairs and kept the kids where they were. After the power went out I continued with the help of candles and the LED flashlight on my phone. Our church was untouched, and our kids had no idea what had happened while we were down there. Three families from our church lost their homes. So, on behalf of Washington Presbyterian Church, thank you to all who donated.

Mat B, thank you for telling us your story! I am sorry that you had to experience the tornado horror! So thankful that you were there to care for the children! God bless you.
