From Mon Nov 21, 2005 3:00 am to Wed Dec 21, 2005 2:59 am (included)
|Shortly after the recent hurricanes we reached out to everyone to help those who were devastated by the storms. The response was amazing. We received donations of clothes. non perishable foods, medical and school supplies. The President went on the air and asked us to help out schools in impacted areas and we did by adopting over 25 schools and we continue to send supplies on a regular basis.
We were fortunate as we were able to arrange for trucks through donations from individuals, churches and organizations. The problem that exists now is that we do not have funds to continue to ship supplies. We have reached out to the major support organizations and have been told that they have no funds to assist us in this effort.
It amazes me that with billions donated a few thousand could not be spared for this effort.
Once again it is left for all of us to make this happen. In order to assure that we can continue to help the hurricane victims as well as other victims of disaster we are setting up a fund specifically for that purpose. Anyone wishing to contribute can send a check to
