Please see the message below from Bonnie Duckworth with Bellevue Church of Christ regarding the urgent need for help in the Bellevue community. We have no phone service in Bellevue, so she can be reached via email – firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can DM me through Twitter @timagee or via email – email@example.com for more information. Many I have spoken with have said that they are in the process of planning how they can help. To be perfectly honest, by the time they finish planning, it will be too late. These homes are beginning to grow mold & mildew, and will soon be unsalvageable. Please help if you can. Thanks for your consideration!
As most of you know, the Bellevue area has been devastated by flood waters. We have members who have lost their homes and everything they own to water. They have asked for our help. We need men who are able to help with furniture and carpet removal from the flooded homes of our members. If you know of anyone who is able to help, please have them come to the church and see me for the location where help has been requested. Volunteers should bring utility knives and shovels w/a flat edges for scraping (I know – I’m not a tool expert). They should also bring work gloves if they have them. The Health Dept. is advising that everyone have current tetanus vaccinations. We will provide food for lunch and plenty of water.
We continue to have no phone service so communications have been a major problem. I’m back up on the internet thanks to a pc card. Steve also has internet service. We are trying to hear something from each church member and will appreciate a brief account of anyone where you know their situation. Please pass this message along to those with whom you may be in contact.
Your help in this effort will be appreciated more than you will ever know.
Secretary, Bellevue Church of Christ
I would also add that there is lots of drywall work to be done, so if you have the appropriate tools, that would also be very helpful.
