Help LCC Expand Our Disaster Response Services
Lutheran Church Charities has graciously accepted a donation of four Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) Disaster Response units used by Our Savior Lutheran Church in Minot, North Dakota in the Hope Village Camp. They operated the units for families to live at during the several year rebuilds after their town was totally destroyed by massive flooding. These units include a professional Mobile Kitchen valued at $52,000, a Bunk House trailer valued at $36,000 that can sleep 12 and two 18’ refrigeration trailers valued at $21,000 each.
It will cost $6,700 to make repairs and purchase tires for each of these units to make them safe for long distance hauling and cover travel expenses of four Lutheran Early Response Team (L.E.R.T.) volunteers.
Please prayerfully consider a donation to LCC Disaster Response Equipment Maintenance & Fuel Expense Fund so that we may continue to show the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Jesus Christ to those suffering and in need.
Lutheran Church Charities thanks Ed Boerman, Steve Chester, Marty Johnson and Mike Kostecki for volunteering to make the long trek to North Dakota to haul these units to LCC next week.
Each of these units will expand the disaster response services LCC Disaster Response will be able to offer when responding to a disaster in the Northern Illinois District or nationally as we are invited to serve in other states. Our L.E.R.T. teams are especially excited to be able to have a professional mobile kitchen to utilize to serve meals to volunteers and disaster-affected communities.
