If you would still like to help, donations are being accepted at IH Mississippi Valley Credit Unions.
Hy-Vee has canisters set-up for donations at their stores.
The American Red Cross is also still accepting donations. You can call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or text “REDCROSS” to 90999 to give a $10 donation.
You can also donate to the American Red Cross by mail by completing a donation form, printing it out, and mailing it to: American Red Cross, PO Box 4002018, Des Moines, IA 50340-2018. If you send a check make sure you write a preferred designation (such as “Disaster Relief”) on the memo line of the check. This helps apply your donation to your supported cause.
If you are out and about you can also stop by the American Red Cross of the Quad Cities’ office to donate or for more information on how to help.
