Planet Aid Assists Ellicott City in Cleanup Effort

Ellicott City, Maryland was devastated by flooding last week, with much of the downtown area severely impacted. Buildings and businesses were destroyed, vehicles were washed away, and one fatality occurred. The incident made headlines around the globe.

In response to this terrible disaster, the second in two years, there has been a tremendous outpouring of support from the community. Planet Aid helped in the effort with volunteers and with equipment.

"We are saddened by the incredible loss that the Ellicott City community has had to endure," said Planet Aid President Ester Neltrup. "We regret that storms such as this, which are occurring more frequently, are devastating communities here at home as well as elsewhere around the world."
