The Landers Family's thoughts and prayers are going out to those affected by the tornadoes that tore through Paron, Mayflower, Vilonia and other communities in central Arkansas on April 27, 2014, taking the lives of fellow Arkansans and injuring more than 100 of our neighbors.
As the search and rescue efforts continue and clean-up begins, the need for supplies and donations is great. Donation bins will be available at both dealerships: Steve Landers Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram at 401 Colonel Glenn Plaza Loop in Little Rock, and Steve Landers Toyota Scion at 10825 Colonel Glenn Road in Little Rock. All donations will be transported directly to the disaster areas by our dealership. Here is a list of items that are currently needed:
- hand sanitizer
- pre-packaged snack items
- bottled water
- baby wipes
- first aid supplies
- over-the-counter medications
- garbage bags
- plastic storage totes
If you would like to donate to the American Red Cross, you can call 1-800-REDCROSS, or text REDCROSS to 90999. You can also log on to redcross.org and make an online donation. Donations to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief fund helps provide affected families with shelter, food, emotional support and other necessary assistance.
