During the early morning hours of June 6, 2010, NW Ohio was hit by the one of the most devastating tornadoes in years. Immediately, organizations and churches kicked into gear to help including ours who raised nearly $1,200 on Father's Day weekend. Since then, the tornado and its aftermath has ceased to be front page news, but the ongoing need for help remains. Which is why my pastor friend Roy Nelson and his friends at Adventist Community Services [click graphic above for more info] secured a warehousing location in Wood County to continue to help victims of the tornado.
In the video below [there's a short commercial first, click the tiny triangular play button in the lower left of the box], Roy explains how important it is to continue to reach out to the community long after the immediate need is obvious. If you have time, whether you're a member of Toledo First or not, please consider heading over to east Toledo and volunteer a couple hours to organizing the contents of the warehouse with Roy by calling 740.381.7703. It's not glamorous, but it is appreciated!!! To read the CBS 11 News story click here. Video courtesy Toledo CBS 11.
