Joseph's Storehouse warehouse manager, Robert Billings, coordinated efforts to collect and ship much-needed food, water and paper goods to areas ravaged by the fierce storms this month.
Joseph's Storehouse Food Ministry co-founder and Executive Director, Peggy Evans, expressed her appreciation for the faithful supporters and volunteers who, "donated their time and effort to help send life-saving food, water, and other items to several locations which have suffered such devastating and unimaginable damage from the monstrous hurricanes. We shipped a total of 12 pallets weighing over 16,000 pounds, including: 4 pallets of MREs (meals ready-to-eat); 3 pallets of canned goods; 2 pallets of bottled water; 1 pallet of hygiene products; 1 pallet of cookies and 1 pallet of assorted snacks and other goodies. The Bible tells us anyone who gives even a cup of cold water to one of these in Jesus' name will be rewarded. We are so appreciative of the people in this area who have assisted us in helping those who are in such desperate need."
While Joseph's Storehouse is known for feeding hundreds of middle Tennessee families each month, it isn't commonly known that we provide disaster relief assistance beyond our local service area. Victims of hurricanes Katrina, Harvey, and Irma, as well as victims of the Haitian earthquake and the Great Flood of 2010 have also been assisted through JSFM.
We couldn't do what we do without the faithful support of our donors. Thank you so much for your generosity.
