Support for the Story Family

Longtime East Peoria residents, Joe and Julie Story, were involved in a tragic accident while returning from a family vacation in Minnesota on Saturday July 19, 2014 near the Iowa-Minnesota border. Joe was life flighted back to Rochester, Minnesota in the aftermath of the accident to treat the serious injuries he sustained. Thankfully Julie escaped the accident without being seriously injured. Joe is still hospitalized far from his home, and his family surrounds him and has had to incur numerous costs to be together such as food, lodging, and other unexpected expenses. As lifelong friends of Joe, Julie, Joliene, Chad, and Amy who all mean so much to many of us, we are striving to reach a goal of $5,000 to help offset the ever increasing costs as Joe recovers up in Minnesota. Please share with all your friends to spread the word about this terrible tragedy and let everyone who loves this family help them begin to recover.
