ICAC has been asked for help in gathering much-needed supplies for animal victims of the spill. According to Director, Jamie McAloon Lampman, â€œThey are not asking for volunteers at this point but they do desperately need the following items for the wild life in the Marshall- Battle Creek area that have been impactedâ€.

- Non-Flavored Pedialyte
- Vanilla flavored Ensure
- Towels with NO snags
