A committee has been founded in Manhattan to help provide financial assistance to those impacted by the Labor Day Wildcat Creek flooding.
The Manhattan Flood Recovery Committee is made up of representatives from Catholic Charities, United Way, the Salvation Army and Shepherd’s Crossing. The local charities will be collaborating to distribute funds that were collected by the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation.
As funds are limited, they will be distributed according to the applicants’ need.
Flood victims can apply for assistance online. The forms can be found on the city of Manhattan website at CityofMHK.com/Flood. Applications are also available at City Hall (1101 Poyntz Avenue), the Catholic Charities location (323 Poyntz Avenue #102), the Salvation Army (208 Poyntz Avenue), or at the Shepherd’s Crossing building (621 Humboldt).
