Family in Crisis

We have a family in crisis! The Pattichots were forced out of their home due to the flooding.  The water has filled the basement as well the entire first floor.  They left with basically the clothes on their backs and are in need of all basic living items.  Right now Tony, Charito and Annette are staying with Sugar and Jeramie.  If you can lend support to the Pattichots, I know they will be so very grateful.

Recovery is a long process but the focus right now is on immediate needs.  Updates will be emailed out frequently.  

Items needed immediately:

  • Clothing:  Tony wears size Large.  Charito: size 6.  Annette: size 3.
  • Personal items:   toothbrushes, combs, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, lotion, etc.
  • Food and paper goods.
  • Bedding:  blankets, pillows, towels.  Perhaps an air mattress.

Items already donated or committed to be donated:

  • Soaps
  • Washcloths
  • Bedding
  • Lotions
  • Q-tips
  • Toothbrushes
  • Kleenex
  • Bubble bath
  • Hair elastics
  • Hair clip
  • 3 pillows
  • Blankets 
  • Throws    

This evening from 6-8 pm, Brian Toay will open the church for donation drop off.  He will then deliver the items to the Pattichots.

Sabbath:  please bring additional donations and Courtney will make a deliver to them.

Emotional and spiritual support, as well as meeting the physical needs, is necessary at a time like this.  Emails, phone calls, texts, Face book, and mailing cards are some of the many ways you can show your care and concern.  Please pray for the water to recede quickly, for the family’s immediate needs, for encouragement, patience and strength to deal with this crises.  Thank you.
