Hornick holds townhall to help distribute aid

Local News

After a week of work on their flood damaged homes, people in Hornick gathered Friday for a town hall discussing future plans for the community.

Hornick residents are now being asked to file a report on what they need  so city leaders can distribute the supplies, volunteers and donations the town has received. People in town say they’re grateful for the continued outpouring of support.

“There’s not even words, just so, so humbling for everybody that wants to pitch in. I mean I was also involved in the Mapleton tornado a few years ago, I was actually there when it happened. We’ve had people reaching out from everywhere and it’s so humbling that everybody want to help and there’s almost so much help I don’t know where to turn,”Hornick resident Allyson Baruch said.

Support continues to pour in from all over Siouxland, aiding in what is still a long road to recovery for homeowners in Hornick.

“We’ve come a long way since a week ago today and if anybody don’t know that we have. I mean its pretty amazing how far you can come in one week,” Mayor Scott Mitchell said.

The city of Hornick will continue to have town meetings for the foreseeable future to help everyone on the road to recovery.

The town is hosting a pancake breakfast to raise funds for people in town.

The Pancake breakfast is Saturday, March 30th from 7:00am to noon. It’s the annual Volunteer Firefighter’s Association breakfast, but they will be giving the proceeds of this year’s benefit entirely to the town of Hornick.
