By Dean Roach, minister, Columbia church of Christ
Dear Friends, as you well aware the relief effort is Alabama is continuing. Most the population has been accounted for and the clean up phase is on going.
Prayerfully, in a week or so the rebuilding phase will begin. As you can imagine, all the hardware and lumber stores have depleted their supplies.
We, of the Columbia church of Christ, are doing what we can to help the community of Hackleburg, Alabama, that was completely demolished. Having spoken with several people from that area, they tell us that they are in desperate need of the following items: sheetrock, sheetrock mud, tape, nails and white paint.
We have teamed with City Supply, (507 Hudson Street) to purchase the sheetrock at
If anyone would like to make a monetary contribution, please make your check payable to the "Columbia church of Christ." We will purchase the necessary items and deliver them to Alabama on June 3rd.
You can also drop off any donations at 501 Jamestown Street or call the church's office at 384-6467, for more information.
Thankfully, our community has been spared the terrible devastation that Alabama received, but it might be us at another time.
Because He Lives!!!
Dean M. Roach
