NewSpring Hurricane Relief Update

This has been an amazing week so far. On Sunday our church stepped up big time to donate supplies for us to send to Healing Place Church in Baton Rouge. On Monday we had a ton of volunteers here helping us separate the food and water that we are sending and put it all on pallets. Today we are loading the trucks and getting ready to send the food, water and tarps to Louisiana. Tonight we have 4 volunteers that are going to drive the trucks to Baton Rouge. Please pray for their safety tonight and tomorrow.

Here are the stats on what we collected for the Hurricane Relief Effort:

2 – 26′ Box trucks – Donated by Ryder!
16 – Pallets of food, water, and tarps
almost 400 cases of water
22,000 pounds of supplies to help with hurricane relief

I want to say thank you to everyone that donated supplies. Thank you for your generosity to help another church minister to their community in a practical way. A huge thank you to Ryder for donating the trucks for us. I also want to say a huge thank you to the volunteers that stepped up to make this happen!
