While Faith Baptist Church has been collecting items for Hurricane Harvey, FEMA has asked that nothing else unsolicited be sent to Texas.
The items collected here in Colleton County will be sent, but anything collected from now on will be held in reserve for relief efforts for those affected by Hurricane Irma.
“Special thanks to all those who offered and those who helped with our effort to make a difference for those affected by Hurricane Harvey. With our governor declaring a State of Emergency, preparations are now being made for the worst of Irma, while we continue praying for the best!” said Pastor Tony Jones.
In the meantime, we are preparing to equip teams of first responders to will work in and around Colleton County in the wake of any disaster that might strike.
Any donations made will assist in relieving those who may suffer loss during this storm, as well as supply emergency personnel with much needed food, water, and alternating periods of rest.
Donations of supplies (generators, water, ready to eat food, pet food, baby food, etc.) will be accepted at Faith Baptist Academy and any monetary donation can be made to Faith Baptist Church RE: HURRICANE RELIEF.
