The Lutheran Early Response Team (LERT) has been assisting in the relief efforts after the December 1st tornado in Taylorville. Pastor Rodney Blomquist shares some of what LERT was able to after the storm.
LERT also accepted volunteer help, and they received help from not just residents, but people outside of the community. For instance, the Millikan Baseball team volunteered.
Blomquist says that the volunteer help made a positive impact on the recovery efforts.
