Nearly 400 homes in suburban Woodridge were damaged in a tornado that tore through the area on Sunday night, with more than two dozen homes considered to be a “complete loss,” according to officials.

According to a press release sent out Wednesday, officials have completed approximately 90% of their damage assessment from Sunday’s storm, which spawned an EF-3 tornado that hit multiple communities, including Woodridge. Where there is a need, there is a Knight. On Monday evening at 5:00 PM, the IL Knights of Columbus State Deputy and Charity Director purchased $2,000.00 in Jewel gift cards to be distributed to homeowners affected by this tornado. There are still many residents in need of assistance, so our council is joining in to raise funds to provide additional gift cards to the residents. We will be collecting next weekend after all the masses. Thank you for your support.

Visit our dedicated web page, https://kofc12801.square.site/disaster, to make a monetary donation using your credit card or Google Pay.  In addition, gift cards can be brought to St. John the Evangelist Catholic Parish, 502 S. Park Blvd., Streamwood IL 60107 through the weekend of July 11, 2021.

Most needed cards: Gas, Hardware, Food (Jewel, Aldi’s, Mariano’s), Target, Walmart.
