Wednesday P.M., from Mayfield
Our team is STRETCHED TO THE LIMITS, but I want to help more people, especially with so many still unaccounted for. Please help us feed tornado victims, and see below. --Gary
Authorities are reporting that more than 100 people are STILL MISSING in the aftermath of the devastating tornado strike that ripped a 220-mile path across four states.
As you know, Mercy Chefs has been serving meals at one of the epicenters of the strike here in Mayfield since less then 24 hours after the tornado blew up this town.
It is as if a bomb went off right through downtown! Our teams have been working day and night to provide hot meals to victims, volunteers and search and rescue personnel who have been combing through the wreckage at the candle factory.
As I write, we're serving dinner from here at our base of operations while teams take meals out to those who cannot come to us. We "adopted" a senior facility after a man in a motorized wheel chair came up the road looking for food. Now, we're taking those good folks both lunch and dinner daily.
+ + Stretched to our limit! Need help!
At the same time, Mercy Chefs has another team preparing to return to Louisiana this weekend where we will serve 8,000 Christmas dinners for the Hurricane Ida victims who are still struggling.
As you can see, we are stretched to our limit and RIGHT NOW WE NEED THE HELP OF EVERY FRIEND OF MERCY CHEFS!
Will you partner with us to help hurting people? Go here to make your tax-deductible gift to help us feed tornado victims and volunteers and continue other efforts.
If you have already donated, THANK YOU SO MUCH! If you haven't given yet, please do so today!
Thanks for your prayers and support, and God bless!
