Pastor Mike Jentes of thequest in Columbus has alerted us to a project on which he and the Pickerington church (Keith Minier, pastor) are combining to serve children affected by Hurricane Katrina. Here is the message they are distributing:
In June of 2007, Grace Fellowship went to Louisiana to help rebuild some homes devastated by hurricane Katrina (2005). There’s still a great need for hope in this region.
We met a caring soul named Charles Dillon, a pastor in the St. Bernard Parish in the lower 9th ward. His passion is to rebuild homes to get people moved into more permanent housing and
a sense of community.
We asked what his greatest needs were for the children and his reply was “We need backpacks and school supplies.”
We hope to fill a semi with these essential supplies and deliver them on August 7, 2007
1 average-sized backpack OR
messenger bag (no wheels, please)
1 pkg wide-ruled loose leaf
paper (150 sht)
1 pkg colored pencils (10-12 count)
1 box crayons (24 count)
1 pkg washable bold tip markers
2 double-sided pocket folders
1 pkg #2 pencils (10 count)
1 pkg long pink erasers (2 count)
1 small pencil sharpener
1 small plastic pencil box
All of the above will supply one child
everything he/she will need for $20.
