WHAT’S HAPPENING

IN MARCH - STUFF THE TRUCK FOR NALC DISASTER RESPONSE

Volunteers from the HMD Disaster Response Warehouse plan to travel to every congregation and mission to pick up Disaster Response donations during the month of March. (Click here for event poster.) Pickup can be on any day and not just Sundays. Everything on the NALC Kits listing or components are acceptable. For NALC Kits list, click here. Depending of the volume of donations, instead of a 26′ box truck we may be bring a just a pickup or a pickup with a trailer. If you are going to donate more than 500 complete flood buckets, I need to know as soon as possible for that will take multiple vehicles or trucks with a trailer due to weight. (Dan would love to have this problem.) For Pickup Registration form, click here.

Currently the only black out date is March 9, 2024. On this date, Disaster Response Training will be hosted at Peace Lutheran in Connersville 9:00 – 4:00.

RSVP to Dan Richardson March 9, 2024 or Mary Bates (740-509-1132) so we have a count for materials and food. Course “Fee” per person is a gift card, which will go to the Disaster Response Warehouse.
