Flood waters are finally starting to recede in Stephenson County, but now comes the hard, and most heartbreaking part of the recovery process: Cleanup.

Many roads in Freeport are still closed due to flooding, but several residents in the area now need help clearing out their homes, and this is where we come in.

If you are able to donate some of your time answering phones at the call center, helping with meal preparations, assisting with cleanup or organization at the donation center, please call 815-233-4757 or visit letsthrive360.com right now
