If you have turned the news on at all, you know about the tragedy Texas is facing right now. One of our board members, Tyler Absher, will be taking a semi truck load of items to Life Church in Houston, TX, this weekend if roads are permissible.

If anyone would like to help/donate in any way you may drop items off at the JOY Crisis Center, at the A-1 Performance Transportation Services building, 411 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY. Just tell Bro. Billy Payne it is for Texas. Here is a list of items they are asking for:

Cases of water
Canned goods
Stuff for babies needs
Personal hygiene items
Cleaning supplies
Dry foods that take little or no preparation
Baby Formula
Pop top lids on all canned foods
Toilet paper
Paper towels
Dawn soap (specifically DAWN)
Clorox wipes/bleach (for cleaning)
Mosquito spraye
Towels (all sizes)
Baby diapers
33 gallon trash bags
Baby wipes
Latex gloves for cleaning
First aid kits (Bandaid/alcohol/Neosporin)
Ziploc bags quart size
Containers to put these items in would help with loading as well. Please have items dropped off by Thursday. Churches, businesses, schools, families and other organizations thank you so much in advanced for your help and please share! Let's fill Tyler's semi up!!! - Maggie Coleman
