Avoid Mold Due to Recent Flooding

Emergency management officials estimate that at least 200 homes across Daviess, Hancock, Henderson, McLean, Ohio, Union & Webster counties sustained significant damage from recent severe flooding. 

One major problem left in the wake of this disaster is the growth of mold. Area families must act quickly to ensure that mold does not take hold in their homes, causing potential health and environmental issues.

GRADD is partnering with our local Red Cross chapters to help residents get back on their feet. In addition to food and clothing replacement, our goal is to raise funds to purchase at least 200 clean-up kits (which include: a bucket, mop, broom, bleach, rubber gloves, scrub brush, all-purpose cleaner / disinfectant, hand sanitizer, and garbage bags). Each kit costs $25.

To make a tax-deductible donation, please visit www.GRADD.com, call 1-800-928-9094 or mail a check (payable to GRADD or American Red Cross, for the “Stop Mold Campaign”) to any of the following locations:
