Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort

in Partnership with Because We Care Ministries

Let us begin by saying “THANK YOU” to everyone who helped load three large trailers with supplies for Hurricane Sandy relief in Sewell, NJ. WSLS Channel 10 has been covering the project and you can watch their report starting with the 6 PM news this evening.

Our work is not done. Don Gillette and his Because We Care Ministries team will be returning to Sewell, NJ later this week to continue their partnership with Fellowship Bible Church. This time they will be bringing donated items as well as helping to cut trees and cover roofs.

Here’s how you can once again help:
  • PRAY! Pray for the people of New York and New Jersey as they recover from this storm. Pray for the teams traveling to the area to provide relief – for safety and for opportunity.
  • Beginning today, you can drop donations off at the office of Building Integrity (7521 Hitech Rd) in Roanoke and at the Wal-Mart in Bedford. Donations needed include:
  • Diapers
  • Blankets
  • Non-perishable food
  • New and gently used clothing
  • Tomorrow beginning at 9:00 am, a BWCM trailer will be in our First Baptist Church parking lot accepting donations. The trailer will remain until 5:00 – 6:00 pm, or the trailer is full.
  • Volunteer! You can help pack these trailers. Volunteers are needed to load boxes and assist in packing the trailers for the trip.
  • Financially support their travels. BWCM needs to cover the cost of travel, food, and, in some cases, rooming. Many people in Sewell have offered their homes, but some rooming will be needed.
  • Spread the word! Help others in our area know of the need and the opportunities.
  • Please pray about what GOD would have you to do. Let’s all do our part to help!
