Tornado Relief for Ali VanVickle & Her Family
As many of you may know a destructive tornado hit several small communities along the I-39 corridor just south of Rockford last Thursday. One of own and her family were among the many who lost their homes. Ali VanVickle, a member of the 16 Orange team in Marengo, was on her way to the JVA World Challenge on Thursday when the news hit that their home had been destroyed. Luckily, nobody was home and nobody was hurt. However, the family now begins the process of picking up the pieces and rebuilding. While they will not be able to replace the personal affects lost, we want to support the family in helping them in whatever small way we can to rebuild.
We have been overwhelmed, by the outpouring of support and requests to help.
1. For those in Marengo or those that are willing to make the drive, we will begin collecting Gift Cards that will allow the family to go out and purchase they necessitites such has clothes and household items. Be creative. Weather they are are to stores like Wal-Mart or Target, specific clothing stores or to resteraunts or grocery stores anything will be appreciated or accepted. Rochelle is a small community, but their neighboring town of DeKalb has many of the larger stores like Kohls, Sears, JCPenny, etc. Of ccourse Wal-Mart is accessible in Rochelle.
We will begin collecting a practice tomorrow. Please bring the gift card, with your family name to practice and we will begin categorizing and collecting them for delivery on Monday, April 20th.
2. We have launched a crowd funding site to accept online doations (for those that are not able to drop off gift cards). That site can be found at https://www.youcaring.com/
If you would like to donate money, but don't want to do so online, you can mail a check to Club Fusion Volleyball, attn: VanVickle Tornado Relief, 11104 S. Grant Hwy, Marengo, IL 60152. We would like to collect all donations by Monday, April 20th.
