A LOCAL MAYOR'S PLEA FOR ASSISTANCE FOR HER

TOWN IS ANSWERED BY A MAN WHO HEARD THE CRY

ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

KAREN WILLIAMS HAS THE STORY.

REPORTER:

"The saying goes if you don't ask, you won't receive. This is a true

statement when it comes to a need, specifically community needs,

one man offered water, hand sanitizer, and masks to the residents

of Eudora, Arkansas. Mayor Tomeka Butler made the plea via social

media."

"Like many of the other cities throughout the southern part of the nation,

we experienced a tremendous compounding effect of water, effected by

the storm, we went without water for about a couple of days. So I made a

cry out to for help to get us some water. To get us some sanitizer and wipes.

And the ANT Mound Foundation heard my call for help and he and his

organization along with his lodge got together and brought this down from

Illinois, about ten pallets of water to distribute out to the citizens of this community."

"Well it was enough that a need was there. And we have a local chapter of the lodge.

They let us know what was going on, and if you have a heart, it's kind of difficult to not

pay attention to what the need is here. So that being said, the need was present and

we wanted to do our part."

REPORTER:

"The ANT Mound Foundation out of Chicago, Illinois and its Little Rock chapter donated

ten pallets of water, Lysol disinfecting wipes, paper towels and tissues to the town and

more is on the way."
