Love Rebuilds

Love Rebuilds is a community bulletin board for Illinois designed to help families impacted by the storms of November 17, 2013. The hope is to connect those in need with those who can help!

Here is how you can get involved:

Submit a need. Were you or someone you know afflicted by the storms in Central Illinois on November 17th? Let us know of a specific need that, if met, will help during this time, whether it’s a replacement for your deep freezer, help removing some trees or limbs from your property, or a vehicle you can use until your insurance claims can be completed.

Fulfill a need. There are so many people who have lost so much in the wake of the tornadoes! Find a need you can help meet so a family right here in Illinois can rebuild their lives. Thank you for offering a hand of love to a neighbor.

Please Note:

Submitting a need is not a guarantee of that need being met. The Love Rebuilds program is fully reliant upon those offering to help actually fulfilling the needs. If you select a need and do not hear back from the nominator of the need you selected, please select another need. There are many needs left to be fulfilled! Please do not buy items for the selected need until you have communicated with the nominator and confirmed your gift.

The Love Rebuilds Web site operates on “good faith.” Love Rebuilds does not have the resources to investigate the validity of all the needs.

Submission Guidelines:

  • You may nominate yourself or someone you know who is in need.
  • You must be at least 18 years of age to nominate someone.
  • You may nominate no more than two people or families for Love Rebuilds.
  • Requests for employment, cash, or any form of cash equivalents will not be accepted.
