Manna One-Disaster Recovery Volunteers Needed- September 2017

There are two opportunities for anyone willing to go to TX or FL to help feed hurricane victims. Woody Tucker, a member of the Hickory Soup Kitchen’s board, is looking for people to help with the Manna One Disaster Food RV in Florida (Sept. 28-Oct. 4th) and Texas (Oct. 3-9th). You go down on a bus with volunteers, stay in a Baptist church on a sleeping bag or cot (you bring), your meals are provided, and you work at the Manna One vehicle cooking and dispensing food and water.  No home recovery yet.  You do not need to be a Baptist or a man.  If interested, contact Woody at 828-612-1156.  Please share this with all others.  You can read more about Manna One at: http://www.bpnews.net/36930/modern-marvel-baptist-disaster-relief-kitchen

There is also a good information video at “Manna One Food Truck” on Youtube that you can check out.  Many people have talked about wanting to help these victims.  Now is your chance to do so, time to walk the walk and be our Lord’s hands and feet!
