With winds of more than 155 mph, Hurricane Michael was the strongest storm to hit the Florida Panhandle is 100 years! The destruction is widespread but Hand of Hope is pleased to come alongside so many organizations that are putting their boots to the ground and making a lasting impact. These organizations plus your partnership are bringing relief to those who desperately need it!
Convoy of Hope
Convoy of Hope was quick on the scene to set up a distribution center. So far, they have been able to provide more than 2,000 carloads of people with much–needed relief supplies!
God’s Pit Crew
Blessing Buckets made their way to Florida. God's Pit Crew—working out of Destiny Worship Center in Panama City Beach—distributed these ready-made relief buckets to people in need. Filled with food, water, household products, personal hygiene items and a new Bible, these buckets are vital to so many people who’ve lost so much in the storm.
Destiny Worship Center
Even though they were dealing with their own destruction, Destiny Worship Center was gracious enough to allow their facility to be used as a distribution hub for God’s Pit Crew as well as a kitchen site for Mercy Chefs.
Imagine your life being turned upside down because of a natural disaster and still having to figure out what’s for dinner. Mercy Chefs goal is to provide professionally prepared, restaurant quality meals for victims, volunteers and first responders during natural disasters. They are working hard out of Destiny Worship Center to provide lunch & dinner and doing it with excellence!
Springfield Community Church
Springfield Community Church was significantly damaged but determined to still have service Sunday morning for their congregation. This church, along with others in the area, have continued to be a light to their community while picking up the pieces themselves.
Here we met Patti. She drove from Freeport, Florida, and ended up volunteering with Springfield Community Church, helping this church and so many of their congregation immediately after the storm. Her entire family lost everything in Katrina, so she was determined to do whatever she could to help her neighbors in their time of need.
Eight Days of Hope
Eight Days of Hope will be joining in the relief efforts in the coming weeks. They do so much to help restore homes that have been destroyed by natural disasters and we are glad to come alongside them!
It’s never easy to see families lives turned upside down after a disaster. But we know, that when we all work together, hope can stand strong. It’s all of us—Patti, Springfield Community Church, Convoy of Hope, Mercy Chefs, God’s Pit Crew, Eight Days of Hope, Destiny Worship Center, Hand of Hope, YOU—working together that make this possible!
