Keep up-to-date on our tornado relief efforts
Thanks again to those of you who have dropped off bottled water, ready-to-eat food items, toiletries, etc. Also to those of you who have contributed financially, we appreciate your generosity!
Operation Blessing has moved on to another location elsewhere. What that means is we will be coordinating efforts from this point forward.
The next few Saturdays we will be focusing our efforts on clearing debris from the hardest hit areas. This Saturday we will be meeting at the church at 8A to go out into the community. Wear proper clothing and bring your work gloves. If you have a chainsaw, bring it with you! We will work for a few hours and see how it goes from there.
Once water and electric service was restored, we focused our efforts on distributing personal hygiene items and toiletries. We have prepared “kits” with those items that people can pick up from our pantry during regular pantry hours (10 AM to Noon, M-F). They will also be available for pick up in our office lobby.
We will also begin distributing gift cards to help folks with gasoline, groceries and other items needed for their homes. We are even prepared to provide financial assistance with people’s repairs. If you are need of financial assistance, please complete the application linked below.
If you would like to make a financial contribution toward food, supplies or whatever else may be needed follow the link below.
We prefer financial contributions so that we can purchase items in bulk.
Please keep all those affected in your prayers and consider helping in some way. Every little bit helps. The people whose lives we are touching are so appreciative! We took two skids of bottled water, a skid of Vitamin Water and a skid of food items to Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church on Gettysburg Ave. Needless to say, they were thrilled! Then our team got to pray with/for their pastor, staff and volunteers!
