Donations for the Shelby Family

Early Sunday morning on June 11, 2017,  there was a house explosion in Marengo, IL.  Over 18 homes were left uninhabitable.

The back of  the Shelby's house faced the street of the explosion and it sustained enough damage to be deemed uninhabitable.  Mike and his family have been displaced and have been living in a hotel since that Sunday.   They were able to collect some items from their home but it could take many months before they will be allowed to live in it again.

Mike's EPS family have put together this fundrasier to assist Mike and his family in their time of need.
Please help them with their journey to get back on their feet again.

Mike has worked for EPS in  Marengo for almost 30 years. His family has been a part of the Marengo community for almost just as long.

Thank you for your support!
