Dear Church Family:
Hearts are heavy for our neighbors in the Carolinas who have suffered the impact of Hurricane Florence. Our church family will soon be collecting and forwarding funds for larger disaster relief programs through our Virginia Baptists.
However, there is an opportunity with immediate needs in the small North Carolina town of Lake Waccamaw (Home town of Ellie Zecchini). Ellie has been in contact with the town. She is friends with the mayor and has discovered a need for some items to help with clean-up efforts. Due to limited amount of space to take items directly to NC, the following are requested:
- Gloves (Work, Cleaning, Vinyl and/or Latex)
- Trash Bags (Heavy Duty and/or Yard Waste)
We are asking for donations of these items this Sunday, September 23. There will be designated collection points located in the church. Ellie will personally deliver these items on Monday.
Many of the houses in Lake Waccamaw have flood damage. Some areas are still not accessible. If items cannot get through, Ellie will deliver all donations to Bayside HS for transportation into North Carolina.
Thank you for your partnership.
