Gaylord Relief Efforts
By Northern Express Staff & Contributors | May 28, 2022
A devastating tornado struck Gaylord last week, killing two people, causing dozens of injuries, and destroying multiple homes and businesses. In the wake of this tragedy, organizations and businesses in the region have mobilized to start recovery efforts. Here are a few we have seen so far: Otsego County United Way, the American Red Cross - Michigan Region, and the Otsego County Community Foundation have started disaster relief funds. Real Estate One of Alpena is collecting food, NEW clothing, and toiletries for their neighbors. You can also drop off similar items at United Way’s Community Services building in Gaylord or ship to 116 E 5th St, Gaylord, MI, 49735. Tip: Gift cards for gas and groceries are a wonderful donation, as are cleaning supplies and items like totes, garbage bags, and work gloves for those working to clean the debris left behind by the tornado.
