Tornado Response Update – S. Ohio/KY BDM is helping homeowners in Harrison Township (Northridge) and Dayton. So far, 350 volunteers have worked about 2,165 hours for 145 families. The homeowners are very appreciative. Thank you to all who have served, made donations, and remembered this ministry in prayer.
There is still much work to be done. In July we will be working Thursdays (except July 4), Fridays, and Saturdays. These are the days that we have been having the most volunteers. This change makes a more manageable workload.
Volunteers are needed for brush and tree removal. Meet at Happy Corner COB at 7:30AM for filling out registration forms, and orientation. On Saturdays a continental breakfast is served. There will be carpooling to the worksite. Arrangements can be made to meet us there. Workdays will end at 4:00 PM. To volunteer, call or text Burt Wolf (937-287-5902) or Sam Dewey (937-684-0510) or send an email to SouthernOhioBDM@gmail.com. Volunteers need to bring a sack lunch, work gloves, chain saws, etc. If workdays are cancelled due to the weather, we’ll post this on the S. Ohio/KY District COB website, and notify the volunteers who are scheduled to come.
Donations are very much appreciated. Expenses are being incurred daily for gas for chain saws, backhoes, trucks, and the BDM van. Make checks payable to: S. Ohio/KY District COB. On the memo line write: BDM Local Response. Mail to: S. Ohio/KY District COB, P. O. Box 785, Greenville, OH 45331
