FRISCO CHURCH SERVES AS DONATION DROP OFF FOR JOPLIN RELIEF
For immediate release
Marketing Director, Genesis Metro Church
Lead Pastor Tim Bourne
In the aftermath of the devastation in Joplin, Missouri, Genesis Metro Church is serving as a donation drop off point all day/night today. Trucks and trailers will be loaded, and driven to Joplin early Wednesday morning.
Clothing, water/food, first aid items, ponchos/raincoats, blankets, hygiene items, etc are needed.
Volunteer teams of men from Genesis Metro Church will leave early Wednesday morning and drive to Grace Baptist, a partner church in Joplin, for distribution. The team will also visit the Joplin Humane Society with donated dog and cat food.
This is not the first time GM has mobilized church members to respond to a crisis. In September, 2005, in response to Hurricane Katrina, GM partnered with a local radio station and held a donation drive all day Saturday. Pastor Tim Bourne canceled church on Sunday and led a team of men, women and children along with 2 semi-trucks to Covington, Louisiana to distribute the items.
“This is why at Genesis Metro, we’re all about people. Because God is all about people,” Pastor Tim remarks. “We can’t see a need and not help. This is what the Church is called to do. To respond. To bring hope to the hopeless. To show others that people care, and it’s because of Jesus that we do what we do.”
Local businesses are partnering with Genesis Metro. Family Christian Store (Plano and Frisco locations) are collecting Bibles throughout the day today, to be loaded up on the trucks tonight. Local car dealerships are donating money for gas for the delivery trucks. The list continues to grow.
Mayor Maso is helping Genesis Metro, using his Facebook and Twitter to spread the word.
For immediate response, please contact Jeremy Breaud, Associate Pastor, at 972-979-7638, firstname.lastname@example.org.
