ST. LOUIS — Hundreds of flood victims lined up Saturday at the Friendly Temple Church in north St. Louis for much-needed relief.
Several interagency resource centers have closed or relocated in St. Louis in the past few days. Things ran smoothly at the Friendly Temple Church on Saturday.
Flood victims seeking help dialed a number to be called to the center. Many spoke to Red Cross officials to explain their situation. Those who have come to church to meet with various charitable organizations have access to various types of help and support.
About 800 people sought help each day at three separate flood relief operations supported by the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency.
“We will be more,” said Terry Cassil, response division manager at the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency. “We want to be here to help anyone who needs to get through.”
Although Saturday should be the last day for a resource center, many families still need help. Some have not yet been able to meet with emergency management officials. Friendly Temple Church plans to conduct several more flood relief efforts next week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9am to 5pm.
