Relief Fund Set Up in Wright

Laramie, Wy – Three days after a tornado hit the town of Wright the extent of the damage is more apparent. Clerk-Treasurer, Valerie Kettery, says two people died and 92 mobile homes were destroyed. "Right now," she says, "most of those families affected are staying with friends or in motels." Kettery says in the long term it is hard to tell what will happen because there is not a lot of available housing.
So far, she notes, 25 families have said they didn't have insurance. To help them and others affected by the tornado there is a relief fund set up at the Campco Federal Credit Union in Wright. The address is:

Wright Community Assistance Tornado Relief Fund,
Campco Federal Credit Union,
PO Box 360
Wright, Wyoming 82732
