Thank you to the churches, donors and volunteers who donated and put together items for the residents affected by tornadoes in Tennessee
St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Beecher, Illinois and Zion Lutheran Church, Grant Park Lutheran Women's Missionary League (LWML) Illinois, put together 30 flood buckets with cleaning supplies at their Spring Rally. They donated them to LCC for the L.E.R.T. volunteers to give to tornado affected residents in Tennessee on their deployment. The buckets were picked up by the Good Shepherd, Frankfort L.E.R.T. volunteers and blessed by Pastor Kevin Hahn before being sent with L.E.R.T. volunteer Joel Powless.
Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Hermitage, Tennessee will be placing them for distribution in their community food pantry as affected residents come for food and now much needed cleaning products.
Immanuel Lutheran Church in Des Plaines, Illinois put together 70 bags with children’s items, such as coloring books, crayons, books and a small toy for children affected by the tornado. Emmanuel Lutheran Church began giving them to affected families in their Early Childhood Center and will continue to use as they serve families in need.
All of these donations are greatly appreciated and show the mercy and compassion of Christ to those suffering and in need.
