Help for the friends and neighbors in the Bahamas
We are all so very grateful to God for sparing us here on the Treasure Coast from the wrath of Hurricane Dorian but our hearts break for our brothers and sisters suffering in the Bahamas. It is so hard to imagine surviving the devastation we see as more and more pictures come forward and we all want to help… So here’s how…
We have volunteered to be a collection site for relief efforts for the people in the Bahamas sponsored by Operation 300 and partnering with the citizens and local businesses of Martin County. We will be collecting the following items daily from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm in our Parish Hall (this is the building just east of the Church) until Sunday, September 15th at 5:00 pm:
Essentially, we are collecting all those things you gather together for your home when preparing for a big storm.
These will be transported to Operation 300 at Witham Field for delivery to Abaco and the outer islands of the Bahamas. We need to act fast…the Bahamian people are greatly suffering and are in dire need.
We are also looking for volunteers to help man the collection center this last weekend. If you would like to volunteer, please use the sign up link below, call the Parish Office at 772-334-4214 and leave your name and telephone number on our voicemail or email Lorie Shekailo at email@example.com.
Please help….the people in the Bahamas have immediate needs and again, we must act fast.
