Our church has also recently purchased three generators, three church vacs, and three extra long, heavy duty extension cords which we have been delivered to three areas of Louisiana that are presently dealing with the devastation of the recent flooding. It has been determined that two more of each is needed. What we will be doing is allowing these areas to use this equipment as long as it is needed to assist in their home to home clean up. When it is no longer needed, we will receive it back so that, with equipment on hand, we will be able to assist when the next natural disaster occurs. If you would like to make a donation toward this project make your check out to the church with the notation “Generator Project”.
