Troop 1631 and members of the parish are working in Bay City to remove debris. Anyone can help with this. Wear Boot, bring gloves and tools: there is no end to the stuff that needs to be picked up. Contact Scoutmaster David Fehrenbacher or the church office if you want to help. You can also just go to Bay City and look for a yard where folks are working. Many hands lighten the load.
Trucks and trailers are needed to haul debris. QA County has made it easier to drop off construction debris and limbs and branches. If you can haul, you are needed.
Gift Cards are available for those who lost frozen & refrigerated food. Local businesses including KMart, Big Lots, Food Lion & Safeway have been helpful. We are also trying to get Hardware Stores involved too. Donations to Christ Church Parish marked Rector’s Discretionary Fund or Tornado, will be turned into more cards.
Haven Ministries is Opening the Winter Shelter as an Emergency Shelter for those who lost their residences, but do not have insurance to cover. Krista Pettit tells me they have the first couple of days covered, but will probably be coming to us for meals early in the week. Checks can be sent to Haven Ministries Inc. P.O. Box 44, Chester, MD 21619
Don’t forget to Pray!!! Thank God for divine protection. Thank God for First Responders. Thank God that only one person was seriously injured. Ask God what you can do now to help and what you can do to prepare for the next disaster. We Are the Hands & Feet of Christ on Kent Island and for the whole world.
