INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WISH) – The Indianapolis branch of Midwest Food Bank will be shipping more than 900 disaster relief kits to the Arkansas and Mississippi tornado victims this week.
Midwest Food Bank officials said the first shipment will include 914 Salvation Army disaster relief kits, which will provide a family of four enough food for a week and 10 pallets of hydration.
“The magnitude of the devastation in the wake of this disaster is quite significant. Many families and individuals, who are victims of this natural disaster, are without the basic necessities of life. We are thankful we can help provide hope and relief to those in need,” John Whitaker, executive director of Midwest’s Indianapolis Division, said.
Whitaker said people can help with the relief efforts by donating here or by sending a check to Midwest Food Bank, 6450 S. Belmont Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46217 designated to “Arkansas Disaster.”
Midwest Food Bank also has locations in Bloomington, Morton and Peoria Illinois and Peachtree City, Georgia.
