Steve Shannon has donated the use of a trailer for AGAPE to collect cleaning and hygiene kits or the individual items to make those kits for the survivors of the hurricanes that have devasted the southeasten portion of our nation which includes Puerto Rico as well as the fires in the west. The donations you give will be taken by AGAPE to Mission Central in Mechanicsburg where they will then be shippped to the affected areas. One hundred percent of your donations will go to assist with this relief effort. If, you prefer to donate financially we have been accepting donations by check to AGAPE with a note in the memo stating hurricane relief. We will send a check to Mission Central and we will send you a letter acknowledging your contriburtion for your personal and IRS use. Again 100% of your donation goes to the relief effort. You may donate the full kit(s) or individual items that are required to make a kit and of course as many of those items as you want. As you have seen, the relief effort will take a long time and much is needed. We in Columbia County were recipients of a relief effort in 2011 and were so grateful for the help provided by our national neighbors. Our tragedy now seems so small in scope but we do have a personal experience and recognize the impact that such storms have on individuals, families, and the communites they live in. So, please help others as they have helped us.
Thank you Steve
