For the past week, we have been talking with our Explorers in After School about Hurricane Florence and how devastating it has been for many families who have lost their homes, belongings, and even have lost loved ones. I have been in contact with the North Carolina Baptist Men who provide a significant amount of disaster relief and support to communities. During chapel we have been talking about community and how we can support the Body of Christ with our gifts and out of this timely discussion the kids have been able to create a list of things we will be putting in bags to deliver to a donation processing center to support those have been affected by the storm. Until October 12th we will be accepting donations for the following items:
Gallon Ziplock bags
Snacks (Poptarts, granola bars, trail mix, etc.)
Pens and Pencils
Items can be dropped off at the back door during pick-up. After the 12th, we will put the bags together as a part of our weekly chapel service on Monday, October 15th, then we will organize a time to have the items delivered to a Mission Camp in Shelby, NC.
