Ways to help a neighbor recover from storm damage

How you can help Benton County storm victims.

SILOAM SPRINGS, Ark. (KNWA) — Thousands in Benton County are still struggling to recover days after two tornadoes rumbled through our area.

Those with Sheep Dog Impact Assistance are helping people like Ammie Olenick, whose home was hit by one of the tornadoes, with debris cleanup.

Olenick is retired, disabled, and doesn’t have insurance and so when the storms swept through she was left asking for help.

On October 25, Sheep Dog Impact Assistance started working on her home.

We are going to town out here and a very big tree fell on the house so we are having to cut in into little pieces in order to get it off so it doesn’t fall through the rest of the roof.

Bob Corscadden, Team & Chapter Development Director for SheepDog 

They were able to get the trees off her home and put a tarp up to prevent inside flooding.

Bob Corscadden, with Sheepdog, said when they got there other companies pitched in to help speed up the process.

“That’s the kind of community involvement we like to see and like to be apart of so thank you Northwest Arkansas,” Corscadden said.

KNWA News has had many people reach out to see how they can help others.

Corscadden said aside from manual labor, financial donations are needed, as well as gift cards to places such as Lowe’s, Atwood’s and Walmart.

He said fuel cards and chainsaw supplies are also needed.
