We were blessed this week to start off with a contribution from Virginia. This donation was the combined effort of Bethany Baptist Church and the ladies of Delta Sigma Theta. They were able to fill an 18 wheeler with supplies and clothing that would fill the gymnasium twice with resources for those whom were affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Throughout the week, volunteers sacrificed not only time, but their resources, choosing to put others before their own needs. Right at 20 men, women and teens worked hard to unload the resources, and then over 30 volunteers came to fold and stage the resources to be gathered by those in need.
In addition to blessing our local community, our community partners were able to share these resources with those they serve. We are honored to be connected with groups like Cook Middle School, Woodwinds Lakes Rehabilitation, Building and Restoring Hope Inc. Church of the Nazarene, Chamillionaire, Pay it Forward, The Rhodes School, Dream Out Loud Inc..
