Northstar has been helping collect relief supplies (food, toiletry items and clothing) for the victims of the April 8 tornadoes in Pulaski County.

The following letter is from Samaritan’s Purse which has been helping coordinate large-scale relief and aid efforts and will help you direct your ministry and aid. Please communicate it to small groups and others interested in providing help.

Samaritan’s Purse is responding to the two tornados that touched down in Pulaski County this past weekend. We are looking for local volunteers who can minister in the name of Jesus Christ to more than 300 homeowners who have lost their homes. Volunteers are needed to tarp roofs, operate chainsaws, and clear out debris.

Volunteers who are local to the Pulaski area and are not in need of housing, can volunteer daily by going to The Refreshing Center (Church of God) at 1621 Bob White Blvd., Pulaski. Check-in by 7:30 AM. Samaritan’s Purse will provide tools, protective equipment, training, work assignments, and a free T-shirt.

Please pass along the attached information to your congregations. If you have further questions, please call 828-262-1980 ext. 1836.

Thank you for being the Hands and Feet of Jesus Christ.

God Bless,
