Filled backpacks; who ordered 200 shovels and crowbars?; it's raining cat litter & dog food - Posted 9/7/16 9:00am

Good morning Denham Springs! Here are some announcements you need to know about the disaster relief efforts of New Covenant Church:

  1. We will have church tonight at 6:30pm and the whole community is invited. We will have either a seat or a 5 gallon bucket  Daniel will lead worship, Todd Whirley will preach, Patricia will have an activity for children. There is rumor we will have a nursery but if you show up and we don't, stay any way!
  2. We have a filled backpack for any of our New Covenant Church family that needs one. Please claim yours by Friday night. Saturday we will give away away the rest of the backpacks to the community
  3. If you attend New Covenant Church and you need a shovel, crowbar, dog or cat food, cat litter, bleach or anything else, come by church and pick it up. We will distribute massive amounts of supplies on Saturday. If you need ANY cleaning supplies, now is the time to come get them. Those who attend New Covenant Church can come any time between the hours of 7am and 9pm. Even if our volunteers are not staffing the donation center, you are still welcome to come pick up supplies and food if you will call or text Todd Whirley at 225.715.6149. Our donation center will be open to the general public 10a-12p today through Friday and 10a-2p Saturday 9/10.
  4. We may get a few dehumidifiers and more floor blowers today. If you still need any, comment below. If we get our hands on some, they will be available to our church family first and then to the general public. If you have borrowed tools, please return them as soon as possible so others can use them. We still have backpack sprayers and other tools for you. It cannot hurt to spray your home more than once with Shockwave. Do NOT use bleach to treat for mold. It doesn't work and it will make things worse according to the experts.
