Donation Hotline 
The Salvation Army has created a toll-free Donation Hotline (888-369-1349). If you wish to donate items, you must call the hotline to determine if your donation is usable specifically for this flood. We are unable to accept spontaneous donations at the site, therefore you must call the hotline and use the process that has been set up for this event.

Insurance Questions
The Illinois Department of Insurance will also be on-hand to answer questions regarding insurance coverage. Bilingual support will be available. For those not able to attend the MARC, they can call the Department of Insurance Hotline at 866-445-5364 to get insurance questions answered.
