Marshall County families still displaced from February floods

PLYMOUTH, Ind. -- It’s been eight months since historic flooding plagued Michiana. Families are still displaced and homeowners are still recovering from damages caused by the flooding.

Angie and Richard Bisnuath are one of 28 families in Marshall County still recovering from flood damage.

“When I woke up and looked out the window all I could see was water surrounding our house,” Angie said. “We were actually living at the neighbor’s house for about two months and even still to this day we’re cooking meals together. I still don’t have a kitchen yet.”

Now, United Way of Marshall County is asking for skilled volunteers to help these homeowners build their homes back up before the one year anniversary of the flooding.

“We are looking for skilled laborers or volunteers we need people that are skilled in the areas of plumbing, mudding, drywall, carpentry, and electricity,” Ashley Garcia said, Disaster Recovery and Volunteer Coordinator for United Way of Marshall County

If you are skilled in any of the area that need volunteers, you’re encouraged to call Ashley with United Way at 574-316-9891. Or reach out to Marshall County United Way on Facebook.
