A fund to help the town of McGregor, hit hard by an EF-1 tornado Wednesday night, has been established by the Clayton County Foundation for the Future.
The fund will help the victims and their families affected by the tornado.
The fun will accept contributions from both individuals and corporations, and will allocate the funds to the City of McGregor and area nonprofits whose efforts address the most critical community needs and provide assistance to households affected by the tornado.
If not all the money is used, it will be kept in a fund to be used as needed in other emergency situations occurring in Clayton County.
There are several ways to help:
Gifts can be made online with a credit or debit card at www.dbqfoundation.org/mcgregor.
Those who wish to help can give in person at two Central State Bank locations:
· Marquette Location, 205 Edgar Street, Marquette, Iowa
· McGregor Location, 214 Main Street, McGregor, Iowa
Donors can also give in person at the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque, 700 Locust Street, Dubuque, Iowa.
