Your Week of Compassion Dollars at Work!
When disasters strike, Week of Compassion is there to help families get back on their feet. Sometimes, disasters come close to home.
The Kansas towns of Dighton, Liberal and Hutchinson were recently hit by wildfires. Large areas were evacuated. Some families lost homes or had damage to their homes, in addition to the loss of crops and livestock.
Thanks to your gifts to Week of Compassion, our church families received disaster clean-up buckets and solidarity grants to help with expenses not covered by insurance.
Thirty Church World Service clean-up buckets were delivered to Park Place Christian Church, Hutchinson, and were distributed to assist in the clean-up effort. Some families have been able to get back into their homes and temporary housing has been identified for those whose homes were severely damaged or destroyed. Full assessment of damage is ongoing.
