Henryville, Indiana was hit by tragedy when killer tornadoes with winds of 175 mph ravaged their town, destroying houses, and killing 13 people. As the town gathered to mourn the loss of loved ones and everyday life, as they knew it, they took comfort in knowing they had the support of each other. They also had the strength, determination, and guidance to rebuild. “We vow not only to help you get rebuilt but to help you rebuild better,” Clark County Commission President Les Young said.
Howl was so touched by Henryville’s story of turning tragedy into triumphant that we just had to help.
Howl at the Moon Louisville will be hosting a drop off event from 1-5 pm on Saturday. We encourage howlers to bring canned goods (non-perishable foods) and blankets. You may also donate tools to help with the rebuilding effort. Bring all proceeds to Howl at the Moon in downtown Louisville during these times. We’re located at 434 South 4th Street Louisville, KY 40202.
Howl’s relief effort doesn’t stop there. We will also be donating a portion of our cover charge from this Saturday as well as accepting monetary donations at both Howl at the Moon Louisville and Howl at the Moon Indianapolis. All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross and Henryville staging areas where military are positioned to deliver goods as necessary. Please help Howl bring relief to Henryville.
