Houston, TX residents given two semi truck loads of supplies
Drive's goal was one semi for Houston; J.O.Y. Ministries effort sent two loaded semi's to help the residents of the storm stricken area. Response was amazing. One 10 year old gave summer's earnings from babysitting pay
From Maggie Coleman, J.O.Y. Ministries; compiled by Linda Waggener
As Hurricane Harvey began torturing the residents of south Texas, the people of Adair County began thinking of them and moving towards lending help.
J.O.Y. Ministries had just been through a move of its location, however, the location on the square would be used for charity one more time before new owners come in. The word went out, "If you have turned the news on 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 Texas 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 on the square in Columbia.
Just tell Bro. Billy Payne it is for Texas. This list went up to help people know what was needed: Here is a list of items they are asking for.
From Maggie Coleman
"We got to send not one but TWO semis to Texas!!
"There are no words to describe how much we appreciate our community. We are overwhelmed by your generosity!! We would love to thank each person, church and organization individually but there is simply no way to do so. Special thanks to everyone that helped load tonight. Yes, we had to start loading early because the center was FULL of items!! God bless our community!"
"We want to share a story from last night with you!! We were sorting, packing and loading boxes and a mother and child came in and had a truck full of items for Texas. In the process of unloading we found out that this 10 year old little girl had babysat twins over the summer and earned $200. When she found out Columbia was helping Texas she asked her mom if she could use her money to help!! How awesome is that!!! What the world would be like if we all had the heart of a child... This young lady is destined to be a world changer!"
Maury Lewis wrote, "I truly enjoyed working with the people that were filling the truck last night and would work with them again. They were taking everything they received and going through it and separating it so when it gets to Houston the people will only have to read the boxes and they will know where it goes and put it on a shelf for the people that need it can find it. I say Be Blessed to all of those who worked down at JOY ministries these past two nights."
