Disaster/Flood Resource Center in Round Lake Beach, Ill.
On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, July 20-22, the American Red Cross, Salvation Army and the Northeast Illinois Community Organizations Active in Disasters (COAD) will join other disaster service organizations as part of a Multi-Agency Resource Center . Residents impacted by the floods can come to this one-stop, resource center at 965 E. Rollins Road, Round Lake Beach, (The old Garden Fresh location)  to meet with trained counselors for resources, obtain housing and insurance information and other assistance from team representatives. Also, the MARC will offer free in-kind donations. There will be translators available.  Hours on Thursday, July 20 will be 11 a.m. – 8 p.m., with lunch and dinner will be provided to clients. Hours on Friday, July 21 will be 9 a.m. – 6 p.m., with lunch and dinner will be provided to clients.  Hours on Saturday, July 22 will be 9 a.m. – noon, snacks will be provided to clients.

Drop-Off Donation Site  To help ensure victims/clients receive the items they need, the Salvation Army has created a toll-free Donation Hotline (888-369-1349) for donors to call and get information on the specific items needed.  Callers will be asked to identify what items they have to donate and if they are not useable items specifically for this flood, the Salvation Army will decline receiving the donation. If they are non-perishable items that can be used in this disaster (or future ones), they will be given an Authorization Code and times the MARC is open to accept their donation. With the Authorization Code, they may drive to the MARC at their convenience any of the three days and drop off their items with designated Donation Management personnel. Callers can leave a message and get a call back should they call after hours or during times of heavy call volume.
