Family of Faith Worship Center Sending Donations to Louisiana
Hurricane Delta recovery efforts are underway and the Family of Faith Worship Center of Waco is asking for denotations to help a city in Louisiana that really needs the help.
KCEN reported on the efforts of Pastor Rueben Andrade as the church is asking for donations of nonperishable foods, diapers, water, blankets, paper towels and other supplies to help those that were hit by both Hurricane Laura several weeks ago and now Hurricane Delta, in the town of Abbeville, Louisiana.
A friend of the Pastor reached out to him asking if he could start a donation drive to help those that live there. Pastor Andrade told KCEN,
"A lot of times individuals rely on national organizations which we appreciate, but in this case the sheriff’s department in Abbeville, Louisiana reached out to us with a list of items. We are asking the community to come together as they've done before to help our neighbors.”
Those looking to help out and donate can do so by dropping off donations between 10am and 6pm, Monday through Wednesday at Family of Faith Worship Center, located at 4112 Memorial Drive in Waco.
More information can be found by calling 254-753-3188.
If you'd like to help with Hurricane Delta relief but can't make it to Waco (or are quarantining due to the pandemic), you can donate to some worthy causes on the ground helping right now.
Donations can be made to the Red Cross at redcross.org, 800-RED-CROSS, or by texting DELTA to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
The City of New Orleans has a list of organizations, many of them local to Louisiana communities, that could also use donations if you can give. See that list here.
