Discover the DRI Foundation: Accomplishments, Goals, and How You Can Help!
When disaster strikes, the DRI Foundation responds quickly providing time, money, and manpower wherever it’s needed.
Look no further than Illinois. In the wake of devastating tornadoes, farmers in Washington, IL, had tough work ahead of them, not only rebuilding homes and barns, but rebuilding their businesses. Fourteen DRI volunteers pitched in to help, led byFoundation Board Director Pete Renneker, clearing debris from the lands so the farmers would be able to plow farm in the spring.
Renneker will be among the panelists gathered to discuss thefoundation‘s recent accomplishments, including Illinois and relief efforts in the Philippines. The session will also cover the foundation‘s plans for the future and how volunteers and donors like you can help get involved! Joining Renneker are:
