By SOP newswire

 

Working with church partner New Life Church in Colorado Springs, CO, Gleaning For The World is distributing water, food, personal care supplies and related items to more than 50,000 evacuees in the state. Supplies began to arrive in early July.

"Evacuees are finding shelter in schools and churches; we want to make sure they have basic supplies," stated Jonathan Falwell, Chairman of Gleaning For The World, a humanitarian aid organization affiliated with Thomas Road Baptist Church. "We are praying for the people there and doing all we can to help them cope with this emergency situation."

Gleaning For the World partners with churches in times of disaster to quickly and efficiently distribute critical supplies to affected communities. New Life Church in Colorado Springs is serving as the distribution point for this effort.
