Help with Hurricane Relief

1. Bring clothes sizes small – 5 XL for nursing home patients who evacuated near our church. Their staff came with them, too, and are living in motels, so restaurant cards would be helpful. All these evacuees need toiletries (toothpaste, hair products, etc).

2. Bring baby items (clothes, diapers, etc) for the shelter set up in Irving.

3. Make a cleaning kit (“flood bucket”). Instructions are on the church Facebook page or at www.umcor.org.

4. Volunteer to sort through the clothing by calling Chris Rickertt at 817- 696-5739.

5. Pray, pray, pray!!
