|M3 Ministries (Mommas & Minivans on a Mission)|
Here is an updated list of most needed items in Tornado Stricken Alabama. I will be keeping updated lists on my blog so please check back for urgent needs and areas still not receiving aid.
I know that often The Red Cross and FEMA or able to go into areas and help with aid but this storm is really just to big and wide spread for them to help every community.
I am urging you to please donate to churches or individuals that you know are heading down to the area with supplies. Who knows how long it will take the larger agencies to get help to individuals. In the meantime they are desperate and counting on kind hearted folks to help them out.
I know of an instance in one area where The Red Cross ran out of supplies and food and had to let a church step in and take over their operation.
Not only are folks getting desperate for supplies but there is also wide spread lotting and folks are starting to panic and become frightened.
I can not imagine what they must be going through and only know that if I were in that situation I would want someone to help.
Every little dollar helps, or every little supply. Everybody has an extra toothbrush or toothpaste, blanket, canned good?
We will be filling a truck and taking it down as soon as that truck is filled.We have drop off locations in Indianapolis, Muncie and Roanoke, IN
Please help, if you are a believer you are called to…
1 John 3:16-18 (New International Version)
16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. 17 If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? 18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
