2017 has seen the beginning of something new with Sheds of Hope. Churches in Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas have built 51 sheds so far this year. Pictured above are numbers 50 and 51, which were built this week at our Disaster Response Warehouse in Dallas, Texas. I love the fact that it is located just a block from Love Field, because when volunteers come and give their time to build sheds, they are truly showing LOVE to disaster response victims.
Our goal in phase 1 is to provide Sheds Kits for families in the Harvey-hit area until we have met the immediate need. In phase 2, our goal is to have 50 Shed Kits built and stored at the Dallas DRWarehouse ready for rapid deployment when the next disaster strikes. This is the same goal we have for our DRWarehouse in Rome, Georgia. This way, we will be ready to cover the Southeast and Central regions of the US quickly, meeting the needs of families, at the drop of a hat!
Contact me if you or your church would like to help provide Sheds of Hope for future disasters. I would be happy to set up a training event or come speak to your missions committee about how they can be ready to bring hope to disaster areas in the future. Whether you are in a small town or a large city, you can help with Sheds of Hope!
