Tornado damage is so extreme. The EF-3 that blew through Dallas earlier this week left a very significant amount of destruction and debris in its path. Given the level of damage, it is truly a miracle that there was no loss of life.
For many families in the path of the storm, it will be weeks or months before life begins to return to normal. And that's where Mercy Chefs steps in.
Yesterday, we served hundreds of meals, including special deliveries in the affected neighborhoods to victims, volunteers, and relief teams. There’s nothing more special to us than the smile that crosses someone’s face when they open one of our meal boxes to see a beautiful, nutritious meal that is so much more than a meal. It's tangible hope and encouragement to help them through the difficult times.
Today and through the weekend, our Mercy Chefs team will continue to extend hope and hot meals to victims and volunteers. This is a critical time for the storm victims, as they sort through the debris and begin to map their road to recovery.
As always, we are working with local volunteers who partner with our Mercy Chefs team to help prepare and serve these meals.
We believe that neighbors helping neighbors -- with the support of a network of faithful friends like you across the country -- is the best path on the road to recovery.
It's happening here in North Dallas, thanks to the partnership of friends like you.
Our team will be serving meals all weekend. Thanks in advance for your help!
Gary LeBlanc, Founder and President
P.S. When your home has been badly damaged by a storm, it can create a strong feeling of disorientation. We see it every time we respond to a disaster. It's amazing how much a hot meal can help -- especially when hand-delivered right in the midst of the trauma. Thank you for making this outreach of compassion possible! Go here to help this weekend:
