South St. Joseph residents are still cleaning up and recovering from last week's flooding.

"Some people, one side of their (house) foundation's been caved in, there's just tons of mud and debris, it's just awful," says Kathy Bravo with Evolution United Methodist Church. "We have a couple members in our congregation that have lost everything and so we wanted to try to help them out as well as other flood victims."

The church, along with area United Methodist churches, will be collecting donations this week to distribute to flood victims.

"Sheets, pillows, bedding-type things, towels, cleaning supplies, hygiene items and gift cards," Bravo says. "We don't want to accept money, we'd rather have purchased items and mainly, I think, cleaning supplies is what everybody needs."

Donations can be dropped off between 1 and 5 p.m. Wednesday at Evolution United Methodist Church in St. Joseph. For more information, call (660) 342-6574.
