Volunteers from all around the community are coming together to help Taylorville recover from an EF-3 tornado that struck the community a week ago. Since Wednesday, over 125 volunteers have been making a difference, with many of those volunteers helping out every day. Scott McFarland, Executive Director for Serve Illinois, says there’s been over 700 hours logged.
McFarland has been in constant communication with the MARC that has been set up at Taylorville Christian Church to understand the needs of the community.
Most volunteers are being placed with organizations such as Rubicon that have been assisting Taylorville since last weekend.
Volunteers will be accepted through the weekend, and next week.
