Tornado Hits the Hometown of Material Handling NetworkMonday, November 18, 2013
At least 400 dwellings in Washington, IL were destroyed by Sunday's EF-4 tornado, leaving many homeless. More houses sustained undetermined damage.
All Network's employees and families are fine and had no storm damage but many of our friends were not so lucky.
We received this email this morning and I am posting it to see if you or your company have equipment or services that our town could use.. below is the information you will need and who to contact.
We appreciate anything that you can do to help.

Material Handling Network
I’m simply checking in on you and yours, hoping that you’ve come through yesterday’s storms without incident. We are currently pointing people to the state’s website for information on open shelters and other resources. http://www.illinois.gov/ready/Press/Pages/111713.aspx If you have other items with which we can assist please let me know.
We know that requests for support – warehousing, transportation, MHE – will emerge over the next few days. If there are contacts in your network who wish to offer these items please have them contact me via email or phone.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
