East Peoria - The Peoria Brick Company is helping those affected by the Central Illinois Tornadoes, one brick at a time. 

The company is selling bricks engraved with “Washington Strong” and “Central Illinois Strong.”

 Made by local vendors, the bricks cost $50 dollars to those whose homes were unaffected by the tornado and $25 for homes that took on partial damage.

“When I’ve seen it done they basically have a printing machine that has a razor blade and will cut out the logo they want on it when they lay that template over the face of the brick,” said Vice President Kevin Reece.

Four hundred reservations have been made so far. Bricks are available at both the East Peoria and Mossville locations.
