SSHE helping flood victims

OTTAWA, Ill. — Seat-tle Sutton’s Healthy Eating, the local, family-owned, freshly prepared meal company is pitching in and helping out Marseilles flood victims with food, water, cleaning supplies and its refrigerated truck.

The company donated a refrigerated truck to the American Legion in Marseilles to help with storing perishable foods, as well as threw in its healthy meals and bottled water to help those who have been impacted by the flooding.  In addition, the company also donated cleaning supplies and garbage bags to the Lions Club.

SSHE is dedicated to its neighbors and wants to help out however it can in this time of need. In fact, one of Seattle Sutton’s daughters, Sarah Sutton Borgstrom, from Morris, dropped off food from her own kitchen she prepared on Monday.

It’s then when she learned about the need for refrigeration and more food and bottled water.

That sent Borgstrom into action to get SSHE to pitch in and help the area so impacted by flood waters.

“I’ve instructed for the truck to stay there until it is no longer needed. We also are continuing to donate food and water until nobody is in need,” Seattle Sutton, RN, BSN, founder of Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating, said.

“It’s the right thing to do, and the only thing to do…to help our neighbors. I’m also writing Governor Quinn a letter, imploring him to help expedite the FEMA process so the residents of Marseilles and the entire area get the much needed help they so need.”
