Disaster Aid – Tornado

In response to massive damage by a tornado which struck the Woodhaven Shores community in 2011, The Forge Foundation created Operation Love Thy Neighbor, and spent 13 weekends removing debris from the neighborhood roads,  saving the community more than $1 million. Woodhaven Shores received no local, federal or state aid for this disaster.
