Two Local Churches Helping Flood-Ravaged West Virginia
Two Fredericksburg churches are sponsoring collections to help residents of flood-ravaged West Virginia.
St. George’s Episcopal Church, 905 Princess Anne St., has boxes in the hallway outside the church office to receive donated items. “There is an urgent need for toothbrushes, toothpaste, baby formula, bottles, diapers of any size, and baby food (please make sure your donations are not past the expiration date),” organizers said. Deliver your donations from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. weekdays, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. weekends.
St. George’s drive runs through Sunday, July 10, 2016. Donations will be taken to St. James’ Episcopal Church in Lewisburg, West Virginia. That church has taken a key role in local response efforts to Greenbrier County, one of the hardest hit areas in the state.
If you would prefer to make a financial donation, contact the diocesan offices at 304-344-3597 (Toll Free: 866-549-8346), or by making an online donation at: http://www.wvdiocese.org/pages/aa-egiving.html (click on “for a special purpose”).
Salem Fields Community Church, 11120 Gordon Rd., filled a tractor-trailer with food and personal items. It left for West Virginia on July 2.
Monetary donations can also be made through the American Red Cross and to the United Way of Greenbrier Valley’s Flood Recovery Fund.
