MANCHESTER, MO. - It has been more than a week since the Meramec River reached record heights in the St. Louis region. Families are picking up the pieces after another historic flood. But they're not doing it alone.
Representatives from a number of different organizations set up a Multi-Agency Resource Center at Manchester United Methodist Church Friday.
Jessica Runyon came to check it out. She says the last 12 days have been rough. Around six feet of water flooded her Arnold home. Now, she's living in a hotel.
"Everybody's house was pretty much destroyed," she said. "You don't have everything you need living with two kids in a hotel, not in their own beds ... definitely a hassle."
The event is helping her family move forward.
"When you lose everything you don't know where to start and that's why we're here, to provide that starting point to get you back on the path of recovery," said Zach Collins, communications manager with the American Red Cross.
It's a one-stop shop for families affected by flooding. Inside, there is information on things like how to receive financial assistance.
"It's a wonderful diverse representation of the strengths of our state, of our community, to see everyone coming together," said Rev. Beth Elders, who is a pastor at Manchester United Methodist Church.
Outside the church, there are items for families to take home, like diapers and pet food.
"I recommend this to anyone that absolutely needs help," Runyon said. "It's a relief knowing that everyone is here to help you."
The Multi-Agency Resource Center is open Saturday from 11:00 AM-7:00 PM at 129 Woodsmill Rd.
