Tom shared that they will be able to use the funds to continue to keep the trailers stocked with needed supplies that they send to churches in affected communities, utilizing volunteers to aid in resident’s recovery. These “stocked warehouses on wheels” are invaluable to all they serve.
Remkea Ockander, Director of Family Ministry with Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Fremont, Nebraska, upon hearing of another donation from LCC donors to their church to assist community in long-term recovery efforts, “Again, thank you for your generosity! We are so very appreciative for LCC and all you do!”
Remkea sent the following information about how Good Shepherd has begun a new area-wide initiative called Project Restore. “Over the next year, we will embark on an effort to connect volunteers from around the country with local residents and towns that need assistance with mold remediation (demolition, sanitizing, cleaning) as well as construction (electrical, plumbing, drywall, mudding etc.). These services are a labor of love and do not require payment or stipulations. We only want to do our part to restore and bring healing to our community. Through Project Restore, Good Shepherd will offer housing, meals, showers, supplies, and plenty of work.” If you know any LERT teams, youth groups, or individuals who would like to serve, CLICK HERE to get started.
The generosity of donors has been much appreciated by each of these churches as they reach out to assist their respective community members.
