Tuesday we set in motion a disaster relief effort among our churches and MOV community to deliver supplies to the families in Oklahoma.
Marietta Transfer Company has supplied a truck and driver and fuel for this trip. Solvay is providing us with excellent bulk containers to ship the supplies in.
We will be collecting at several locations in the MOV plus delivering the large container boxes to over 20 churches that are willing to participate to be filled by Tuesday. On Tuesday we will need many willing hands to sort and repack the boxes. The sorting will be done at Skuttle Industries in Marietta beginning at 10am . As soon as the trailer is packed, the driver will leave. Please be in prayer for the families who have lost everything.
In Oklahoma we have pastors that we have known for 20 years in the immediate area of the disaster who are ready to receive this tractor trailer load of supplies and get them to these desperate families. Your donations will be handled by churches and distributed by caring leaders responsibly. We are also receiving cash donations that we can distribute through these same leaders.
We will also take any volunteers who can work a few hours at our community drop locations.
