About the Tornado Relief Effort
NuLu is just 20 miles south of where the major tornado disaster occurred in Henryville, Indiana last Friday. Had the winds blown slightly south, NuLu would be in the same position. Imagine bricks littered about Market and Main Streets, homes and businesses destroyed. The tornado victim’s needs cannot wait. There is an urgent need for food, clothing, and basic necessities. Please help us send desperately needed aid to the victims of the 2012 Tornado.
There is a PAVCO collection trailer for the Voice Tribune’s Helping Henryville Immediate Need Campaign parked at Barry Wooley Designs. The trailer will be on location for Friday’s event and through Saturday, March 10th at 7:00pm. Items needed include: Building Supplies, Non-Perishable Food, New Clothing, New Bedding, New Toiletries, 8′ Tables, Mops, Push Brooms, Tarps, Batteries, Storage Containers, Flashlights, Laundry Detergent, Candles, Matches, New Underwear.
The East Market District, also referred to as NuLu, is now best known for its art galleries, specialty stores, antique shops and a growing number of local, upscale restaurants. The term “NuLu” is a portmanteau meaning “New Louisville”.
