Worship with Us This Sunday - 10:15 a.m.
You never know how creative someone might be when it comes to helping in the aftermath of a devastating event. Not long after the reports of the aftermath of the May 20, 2013 tornado, Pastor Todd received a phone call. His cousin Steve’s wife, Mary, had been contacted by a Pampered Chef representative. They wanted to help.
Here is a bit from Lisa Holzerland,
Hi everyone. I have a request that is close to my heart. Some of you may know that our family had a tornado hit our home when we lived in Hallam, Ne in May of 2004. Our town was demolished and our home was a total loss. Many, many people came to help and donated their time, money, and also items which helped us get back things we had lost. We felt so loved by those people who didn’t even know us and I want to return the favor.
Mary wondered if Snow Hill could be a collection point for Lisa’s planeed Oklahoma Tornado Fundraiser. We, of course, said, yes. Here are the details,
I am holding a Pampered Chef fundraiser online where you can purchase items for these people so they can get back on their feet. I am also donating 100% of my commission from this to the American Red Cross because they were there for us right away and I believe in that organization. If you would please consider purchasing some basic items, I have a contact in Oklahoma where all the items will be shipped. It is the Pastor at Snow Hill Baptist Church in Tuttle, Oklahoma. All items will be shipped there and distributed to the families.
Already a number of orders have been placed.
The event is an interesting project as the items being ordered are basic kitchen items that would provide some of the basic utensils, etc, needed by those starting over. If you would like to participate, click here.
