Hillsdale’s first disaster relief team is back (4 trucks and 2 trailers), and we are sending a second group to Port Charlotte early Wednesday morning, and a third team into the area Friday morning. At this time, we are focused on delivering desperately needed staples. That effort will soon turn to physical laborers who are able to handles chainsaws, etc. (Hillsdale currently has 17 chainsaws on site in Port Charlotte).
The attached slide gives an updated list of items requested by victims of Hurricane Ian. Hillsdale Baptist Church is coordinating our relief efforts with Tri-City Baptist Church, Port Charlotte, FL and Operation Renewed Hope. Donations may be dropped off at Hillsdale Baptist Church, 6201 Ehrlich Rd., Tampa, between 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM.
Financial donations to support food and water purchases may be made to Hillsdale (100% of donations designated to the Disaster Relief will go to that effort).
With the heart of a shepherd,
Travis D. Smith
