Columbia Christian thanks donors for flood victims
Columbia Christian Church would like to thank the many people who made donations for the flood victims in eastern Kentucky. Richard Phelps, Dennis Loy and Trent Miller delivered everything Monday, August 8, 2022 to Jackson, Kentucky.
It took a week to find the right contacts and get organized to get the donations delivered.
There were no direct ties so Phelps contacted a former funeral director he'd known for 45 years, Judge Frank Allen Fletcher, and asked him who they needed to bring donations to. He said Judge Fletcher made some calls and connected them with Rev. Bobby Holland, pastor, at First Church of God in Jackson, KY which appeared to be the epicenter of help in that county.
The pastor told us, "We've been going for eleven days, with no end in sight."
Once there, "the devastation looks overwhelming," Phelps said, "but supplies are coming in and they are reaching the people who need them."
The First Church of God fellowship hall had things so well organized they can receive supplies, quickly organize them and move them straight to people in need.
He observed so many there to help, the response is incredible - Christian churches, Latter Day Saints, Jewish congregations, Samaritan's Purse organization, Eight Days of Hope, and more, in addition to government assistance on the ground.
Yet, they are just beginning, just now getting the mud shoveled out their doors, dealing with the debris of downed limbs, trees and twisted metal. Not near done needing help. In addition to Monday's delivery, the Columbia Christian Church will take up a love offering on August 21, 2022 at the Sunday morning service. Anyone who can't attend but would like to contribute may send a donation to the church at 206 Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY, marked attention flood victims.
He said, "It restores faith to see people working together, being so generous."
