“Many of our colleagues have significant damage to their homes, and we are working to provide temporary housing arrangements, supplies and support as they work to rebuild in their personal lives at the same time,” said ADM spokesperson Jackie Anderson.

Anderson said volunteers and supplies have been sent to help restore operations and make repairs as quickly as possible.

Anderson said 15 volunteers arrived on-site last week, each driving a recreational vehicle rented by ADM to support displaced colleagues and their families with temporary housing.

ADM is also providing hotel accommodations to colleagues as needed and sent more than $2 million in supplies, including food, water, fuel and generators, said Anderson.

“We understand the difficult situation they are facing and are providing as much support as we can from Decatur,” Anderson said.
