City of Russellville and other organizations team up to help those impacted by Hurricane Ian



Russellville, Arkansas – continues to deal with the destruction caused by storm Ian.

Together with the Rotary Club, Lions Club, and Kiwanis Club, the city of Russellville is packing a semi-truck with supplies to send to Florida. They request canned groceries, water, toiletries, and other things.

“They really need the help and they need it now and that’s why we started this as soon as we could pull it together to try and get some supplies out there,” Mayor Richard Harris said.

Leo Cantu, president of the Rotary Club, said it was devastating to watch the hurricane’s devastation and that they needed to take action.

“Our slogan is I love Russellville,” Cantu said. “We want to show the love not only to Russellville but to others and so that’s something that I can tell you is a match of who we are as a city and a match of who we are as a group.”

You can drop off donations at the Hughes Center on East Parkway Drive if you’d like to. This week and the following week, they will accept donations from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday through Friday.
