Last December severe flooding ravaged Central Illinois, devastating the town of Kincaid. In the past year there has been an outpouring of support from all across the region for the relief effort. Several groups involved in the relief effort joined together Wednesday to present a check of $100,000 to represent donated money and supplies. John McClure, a prominent figure in the city of Taylorville said why he and many others felt the need to help.
McClure said he wanted others in the region to see the effort that Taylorville and other surrounding communities put forth, so hopefully they will help in the future.
