UPDATE: Oh, how I love my church. You turned out and filled not one but several cars with food to serve tornado victims and relief workers. THANK YOU! If you weren't able to help this time, be assured there will be plenty more opportunities in the days and weeks to come. More info at church tomorrow!
This is an announcement for our community churches and any individual who would like to help.
(I'm assuming you'll know if you are in my community :)
The Operations Center responsible for feeding work crews and families after the tragic tornadoes here have just requested help with dinner tomorrow - Saturday. There is plenty of meat but the center needs side dishes and desserts. If you can help, please prepare your dishes and deliver them to our church Fellowship Hall by 9:30 a.m. Make sure it is in a container that does not have to be returned. We will deliver the food in one vehicle to prevent unnecessary traffic into the area. Leave me a note or call if you have any questions. Also, please call anyone you can think of to get the word out...
For those of you elsewhere, please keep the families who have experienced so much loss in your prayers. For more information on the devastation that struck way too close to home (less than 5 miles as the crow flies), go here.
