I prepared a brief video update for you on Hurricane Ian and Mercy Chefs' preparations for what could be our largest deployment ever. Go here:
+ + Category 4 MONSTER STORM
Ian has strengthened into a Category 4 storm with top sustained winds of 155 mph. Forecasters are now saying areas of Florida could receive over 20 inches of rain, which means this storm is bringing the potential for catastrophic wind damage and flooding, along with a coastal storm surge of up to 16 feet! The National Weather Service says "catastrophic wind damage is likely."
We need your help TODAY!
Mercy Chefs has already DEPLOYED, with three mobile kitchens in transit and ready to serve the areas of greatest need.
I urgently need your help TODAY as Mercy Chefs deploys for what could be one of our largest outreaches in response to a massive hurricane strike in Florida
Landfall will happen later today. Please pray! And please help as you can.
Gary LeBlanc, Mercy Chefs
