Collecting Supplies Related to the Okefenokee Fires

In the days of the early church, there was a famine in Jerusalem, and the new churches responded, taking up a collection for those who were suffering.  We have an opportunity to do something similar, to help with supplies needed for those who are fighting the fire, those who have been evacuated, and those providing relief.  If you can help out, please bring any of the items from the list below to our worship gathering on Saturday night (6:30 at Faith Community Church.) One of Kent Wehmeier’s colleagues is involved in relief efforts.  Kent has agreed to take our donations and make sure they get in the right hands to be delivered.

If you want more information, you can get in touch with Kent, who is copied on this email.  Here’s the list:

Items that are most needed include such things as:

  • Gator Aid
  • Bottled Water
  • Packaged snacks (chips, crackers, cookies)
  • Artificial tears
  • Baby Wipes
  • Lip Gloss
  • Men’s socks
  • Deoderant
  • Pop Tarts
  • Pancake Mix
  • Syrup
  • Donuts
  • Soda
  • Lightweight work gloves
  • saline nasal spray
  • OTC sinus spray
  • toilet paper
  • body powder
  • Germ X
  • AA batteries
  • inexpensive sunglasses
  • inexpensive flipflops
  • Men’s boxer shorts (all sizes)
  • Bug spray

No perishable items please.

The Lord loves a cheerful giver.  See you Saturday!
