Indian Lake Resources, Updates & Continued Efforts


Clean-up efforts continue at Indian Lake.

Sunday, volunteers worked for several hours to clean debris from shorelines around Indian Lake.

Here’s your Monday update on continued efforts and important information:


As of 12:20 PM on Sunday, 2,281 donors have given $871,637. The United Way Board seeded the fund with $100,000 the morning after the tornado to help start relief efforts.  Thus the total Relief Fund stands at $971,637.

To date, $87,347.16 has been used to purchase roofing materials, generators, portable storage units, transportation, prescription medication, set up two Multi-Agency Resource Centers, and provide specialized assistance to clients of a mental health agency and the Logan County Cancer Society. Agencies involved in providing direct relief to provide for the basic immediate needs of tornado victims (food, clothing, shelter, transportation, prescriptions) can apply for funding at THIS LINK or by calling United Way at (937) 592-2886.

In the coming weeks, we will be working with the EMA and other local organizations to identify the unmet needs of victims and provide help in those areas.


United Way is coordinating TWO Multi-Agency Resource Centers for any tornado victims.  Representatives from agencies such as the American Red Cross, Bridges Community Action, Community Health & Wellness Partners, Logan County Department of Job & Family Services, and multiple government and non-profit agencies will be present to help victims apply for benefits and other assistance.
