A Message from Washington, Illinois

When natural disasters strike, NFDA does its best to reach out to members in the affected areas. Many of you heard about the devastating tornadoes that struck the community of Washington, Ill., on November 17. NFDA received the following message from NFDA member Stephanie Deiters of Deiters Funeral Home, which has locations in Washington and nearby East Peoria.

Thank you fellow professionals from across the country for you generous outpouring of concern and prayers. Washington, Illinois has been my home since childhood, and to see the devastation has been difficult to say the least. Many have asked what they can do? At this time prayers are best. Also, financial contributions may be made to the Washington Rotary Foundation which is a 501c3; 100% of the funds donated stay here in our community. They can be mailed c/o Deiters Funeral Home 2075 Washington Rd. Washington, IL 61571. In the weeks and months ahead, many will have to start over, and at that time additional items may be requested. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such a wonderfully caring group of individuals. I am truly proud to be a funeral director. God Bless you all, Stephanie Deiters
