"Norbert and his family have lost everything," said Don McPherson, who established the relief fund and will work with Bendixen in distributing the funds, "and there are also a number of other families who were afflicted. This fund is intended to provide some relief as they set about rebuilding their homes and lives."
To donate, individuals should make the check payable to the KNB Relief Fund and send it to the KNB Fund, c/o West Suburban Bank, 2800 S Finley Rd., Downers Grove, IL 60515. Before sending the check, please write 2100042379 and "deposit only" on the back of the check.
Anyone who would like to send messages of encouragement or to keep up on the news, please check Bendixen's Facebook page.
