You all have heard of the severe weather outbreak and tornadoes from Friday. Much of the eastern half of the country experienced this first hand. Our scouts and first responders are busy assessing the multiple areas hit including towns and cities in six states. We will have staging areas and distribution sites identified in the coming days and will be ready to have teams. Trucks are on standby for delivery.
Here is how you and your church can respond:
- SEND a Team (First responders, chainsaw, skilled are first wave. Non skilled to follow by weeks end.)
- PRAY – asking special prayers for a baby found in a field 10 miles from where she lived, she is in critical condition. Her parents and two siblings didn’t survive. Many others are also seriously injured, homeless and hurting.
- GIVE – your DONATION is critical to ongoing relief and recovery.
- Connect us to people in your community needing help and currently helping (churches).
- Become Prepared in your community: Disaster Preparedness Training
Even prior to this latest outbreak, CitiIMPACT had multiple teams on the ground. All are safe. Hundreds of college students will be volunteering their spring break weeks in Joplin, Tuscaloosa, and Charlotte with CitiIMPACT. What an honor to serve them as they serve. Keep them in your prayers.
