Volunteers Needed – Relief Trip to Midland, MI
We are requesting volunteers to assist with our first flood relief trip to Midland, MI next week (June 1-5). The Midland community banded together to help each other remove water-damaged furniture, appliances, flooring and drywall from all the homes in flooded areas and many are now applying mold inhibitors. Yesterday, Fulton & his daughter Jessica delivered supplies and surveyed a number of worksites that will be ready for drywall by Monday. Over the coming weeks Isaiah 58:12 will be sending volunteers to help re-drywall at homes in the greatest need.
Our home base and point of contact is New Life Vineyard Church. We will stay at the church and can utilize their kitchen for meals, and will also get meals like pizza and subs from local businesses. Bring cash for food if you are able, but Isaiah 58:12 can cover gas and food for any who need it.
Check out the details below and please respond to this email letting us know what dates you can make it and if you would like to car pool or drive yourself (the drive is about 2 hours 40 minutes each way). Regardless of whether you can come for the week, overnight, or even the day your assistance would be greatly appreciated by those in need.
DATES: Monday June 1st – Friday June 5th (more trips to follow)
LOCATION: New Life Vineyard Church 1014 E. Ashman St. Midland, MI 48642
NEED: Measuring, cutting, hanging drywall, mudding/spackling, sanding
Sleeping Bag, Pillow, Personal Hygiene Items
Dust Masks, Hat & Work Gloves
If you have them: Drill, Razor knife, Hole Saw, Tape Measurer, Drywall Tools
We also want to sincerely thank all of those who have already donated supplies and funds. If, you cannot volunteer, but still want to help, the greatest need is prayer for victims who are struggling right now and donations to be used for purchasing drywall for those without insurance who cannot afford it. You can give at www.isaiah5812.org.
