Event Details

Hurricane Eta (Cat 4) hit Honduras on Nov. 3rd & Iota (Cat 5) hit today! I received a call from my friend, Rob Alexander from the Valley Church in Piqua, OH who coordinates Honduras mission trips & forges those relationships with our Honduran friends called me last week. He asked if wapaknaz would want to put a trailer on property to collect. We wanted to see a large community effort so I connected with Rebecca from the WAC to have a centralized drop-off location! And here we are! The trailer is being dropped off tomorrow to start this huge effort for a very short time. So, below is some basic info & we are asking as many organizations to partner with the effort as possible. Other than collections, we are asking businesses & organizations to Serve One Day at the trailer to assist people who drop-off items! Would you please Be Hope By Giving Hope Because When We Are Hope We Ourselves Receive Such a Great Blessing! Please let me know how you would like to partner in this effort! Thank You! Thank you!
