Oklahoma Tornado Relief (Thu. May 23, 2013 12:00 pm)
A team of 4 are going to Oklahoma this weekend to assist with clean-up, and any other way they can. They are in need of supplies, but more importantly donations so they can purchase the supplies. Please feel free to donate any of the following items: bottled water, Gatorade, baby wipes, baby formula, diapers, individually wrapped snacks, hand sanitizer, hand towels, work gloves, sunscreen, and any ready-made food. Athens Christian Church is accepting the donations in their office. Most importantly prayers are needed for the team and also for the victims during this terrible time.
