Brethren assist in Sandy recovery
One of the young Plymouth Brethren helpers participating in relief efforts in the clean up following the devastating Hurricane Sandy commented:
“Yesterday’s Superstorm Sandy Public Benefit event was put together very quickly, but it went very well, and was well-received by the community. We collected a whole truck-full of clothes, food, and toys for those devastated by the storm.
We collected more than $2300 from the bake sale, and $450 in donations to forward on to the disaster relief charities. We gave away 47 bibles, and with the help of some neighborhood stores provided a free lunch for anyone that wanted to stay. Some neighbors came by, and were really amazed by the work the school had done.”
