Letter: Thanks To All The Hurricane Relief Donors

What started as a crazy idea to load an enclosed trailer with diapers, wipes and formula for those affected by the recent hurricanes grew into a fully loaded 53’ semi trailer full of hurricane relief supplies for Texas and Florida.

None of it would have been possible without the support provided by so many.

We can’t say how thankful we are to live in such a generous town where the idea of helping your neighbor is still alive and well.  Trunk loads, and truck loads and multiple trips and countless prayers and so much kindness.

Wow, just wow.

It would be impossible to thank everyone who helped but these businesses and individuals easily came to mind. Thank you thank you thank you for your help!
