The Feed the Need Missions disaster relief team is gearing up and getting ready to head out tomorrow to start serving more communities. We will be heading to several cities that have been affected by the Harvey disaster, but before we do WE NEED EQUIPMENT.
We are partnering with Celebration of Love and Snappy Snacks and have already accounted for what we currently have, but are in need of the following items ASAP. Please note that the items we need are very specific and include a link to an example below.
If you have any of these items to donate, or can go purchase one and get it to our team ASAP in Bastrop, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-888-511-7173 to coordinate.
Otherwise your financial donations are greatly appreciated. If you can donate money for us to purchase equipment, simply make a note in the comments on the donation form that your donation is for ‘disaster relief equipment.’ Please note that the cost of the items below is approximate.
