Help Washington, Illinois



 
Saturday, November 23rd at 1:00pm
Sacred Heart-Griffin vs. Washington
for the Class 5A State Semi-final 
 
Washington, Illinois sustained massive damage from an EF4 tornado on Sunday, November 17th.  

The people in Washington want to see their team play in the semi-final, but many of them now have no transportation due to to the storm. That's where we can help.

The students, parents, and faculty at Sacred Heart-Griffin are organizing an effort to help the people of Washington, Illinois get to the game...and they're going to feed them all (players, coaches, and fans) after the game.

If you'd like to make a donation toward this cause there are three ways to do it...
1. Make a donation at the SHG East Campus (1200 West Washington in Springfield)
2. Make a donation at the Neuhoff Media Springfield studios Mon-Fri 8a-5pm at 3055 S. 4th St. in Southern View
3. Come to the game Saturday at SHG, and staff from Neuhoff Media-Springfield will be collecting monetary donations at the gates.

Any donations above and beyond the expenses will be donated to the American Red Cross and will be used to purchase more supplies for Washington as needs arise.
 
**THERE IS A DESPERATE NEED FOR BOTTLED WATER!**
If you'd like to donate bottled water, go to the SHG West Campus (1200 West Washington) and look for the Green Family Stores trailer.  The goal is to fill the trailer...twice!
They're taking bottled water donations at this location through the game on Saturday.

**For those in the Taylorville area**
You can drop off monetary donations or water donations at the Taylorville Wal-mart through Wednesday, November 27th, and they will take care of transporting both to SHG.
- Water donations can be left at the front doors...there will be an area designated for the donations.
- Monetary donations can be made at the Service Desk.  There will be a fish bowl there for donations.
**Update Thursday, November 21st -- The boil order has been lifted, and there is no longer a need for bottled water donations.  Monetary donations are still needed.**
