Pastor Ryan Ankersen has committed Good Shepherd to be the long-term recovery center to house, feed and send volunteers to serve in the flood affected communities for the next year as residents begin the rebuilding process. Good Shepherd is now open to individuals and groups who are willing to volunteer. Please go to www.gslcfremont.org and select the Project Restore link if interested in serving here.
Tom Grunow, Director of Financial Generosity and Disaster Response Coordinator at Christ Lincoln, states that needs and collections of supplies have greatly diminished but they continue to inventory what they do have. This weekend they were able to finally get all of the trucks emptied of donated goods and organized into their church, which is still serving as the community warehouse. Many of the items will be used for ongoing recovery efforts. Some items will be given to local agencies who serve needy families, many who have been affected by the flooding in some way, and saw their own donations diminish due to people concentrating on disaster relief the last 6 weeks! They are very glad to be able to serve the community in this way.
Please prayerfully consider donating to help LCC continue supporting the individuals and families affected through our churches during their long recovery.
