Janie Autz, our Director of Outreach on staff here, shared this news with me via email:
Katherine Turner, our Outreach Chair, and her daughter, Savannah (who will be baptized here on Sunday), have been volunteering in Forney today with one of the churches offering relief to families who have been displaced from their homes due to the tornadoes. Katherine says at this point they are not in need of any additional donated goods. But, families could really use gifts cards for restaurants… i.e. Subway, Chili’s, Pizza Hut, Dickie’s BBQ, Wendy’s, Chic-Fil-A, etc.
We will have baskets placed around the church on Easter Sunday if you would like to help. Losing everything you have, staying in a motel, and having to eat all your meals out is very expensive for one person, much less a family. Helping these families on Easter Sunday would truly be a “Resurrection Sunday” for them as well as each of us.
Katherine is our Outreach Chair and will deliver your gifts to the church in Forney on Monday who is coordinating relief efforts with the families.
Get to it, Table peeps. Bring a gift card and bless someone devastated by the recent storms this Sunday.
