Flood Relief Fund

On August 11, 2008 Nearly 40 families in the City of Rensselaer were forced from their homes due to flooding. Some of these families lost everything but all were greatly affected. The devastation has created a tremendous burden on all the families, many of whom do not have flood insurance to help with the costs. In addition, many of the children in the community have been affected because both the Rensselaer Little League field and Boys and Girls Club have been damaged. That is why it is up to our community to come together to help our neighbors in their time of need. Please donate as much as you can!
