West Virginia Needs Our Help
Almost Heaven, West Virginia has become hell for some of her residents. Last week, a 500-year flood slammed the hill country, taking the lives of 23 people and devastating several small towns in the Charleston area.
These small towns, built around now-shuttered coal mines, are already poverty-stricken, even in the best of times. Now, however, what little the residents had has been washed away by a tsunami of water rumbling down the valleys. They need our help more than ever.
Once again, we are on our way to help. As you read this, we are already on the road. Can you help us help them?
We have a track record of effectiveness. Over the past decade, we have transported food and supplies to help the victims of Katrina, Rita, Joplin, Moore, and various disasters all across this nation. We are effective in what we do. Many of you have helped us in the past, and you know the integrity with which we operate. The same group of volunteers load the food in Ohio and unload the food in West Virginia.
We partner with local churches in the flooded area to get the supplies to those most in need
We pay no salaries. We have no big-shot CEO’s who oversee our operations. This is done man to man and church to church. It is the way Christians should operate.
Our friend Pastor Art Wilhite, aka “THE BREADMAN,” has been co-coordinating disaster relief for over 25 years. He has a working relationship with two major suppliers here in Columbus, Ohio. They trust him and his integrity.
This week, The Breadman has been in meetings securing the food and making arrangements to find and secure the trucks. Our trucks are loaded with food and rolling!
We simply need the funds to transport the food to the Mountaineer State.
Columbus, Ohio, is about 150 miles from the Charleston area, and we will leave Thursday morning with over $50,000 in fresh bread products, water, and other supplies to the devastated area. Would you be willing to help finance this relief effort?
Please, if you haven’t already, don’t send your money to the Red Cross…or FEMA…please work through us. We make the greatest use of your hard-earned money with the lowest overhead.
Your dollars will pay for fuel, food for the workers, and other expenses associated with the relief. NOT ONE CENT WILL GO TO PAY ANYONE A SALARY!
In addition, we take prayer teams with us and we openly share the Gospel with the residents. This is a unique opportunity to turn the eyes of the needy away from the long arm of government and towards the nurturing arms of the church.
We believe it is the way God would want it…THE CHURCH helping the needy…not more dependence on the government.
