Tornado Relief & Outreach Update

The Troy COB has partnered with Pleasant Hill and Covington COBs to

provide donations and funds for the tornado relief effort in Dayton. If you

would like to donate goods, this is an updated list:

paper towels, toilet paper, diapers size 5 and 6, liquid laundry

detergent, trash bags, paper plates, plastic forks and spoons, dish

soap, Gatorade cases/ Propel, squeeze bottle jelly, pasta sauce and

boxes of pasta, cereal, Pop Tarts, Hygiene products (no shampoo),

and totes/grocery bags


Please place all donated items in the collection box at the Welcome

Center. The Outreach Team will see that the donations get to

Pleasant Hill. We will be getting weekly updates of needs. New lists

will be at the Welcome Center as they are made available.

The district is also accepting funds for volunteer expenses, fuel and

cleanup supplies. Please mark any offerings for the Church of the

Brethren Disaster Ministries. Checks can be made payable to the Southern

Ohio/Kentucky District Church of the Brethren with Disaster Ministries in

the memo.

The team has been busy planning for other projects. July 28th will be our

dessert auction with proceeds being shared with Hook Elementary School

and funds sent to the district for the purchase of clean-up buckets. Also,

we will be collecting contents of hygiene kits and school kits again this

summer with assembly planned for Sunday afternoon on September 8th.

We realize this is a lot of "collecting" and do not want to overwhelm

anyone. We are attempting to keep our congregation aware of

opportunities for outreach. We are a generous congregation, but we all

have financial limitations. Please prayerfully consider which project or

projects speak to your heart and give as you feel comfortable giving as we

continue to spread the love of our savior. Outreach Chair, Bev Johnston
