Albany church lends hand in Mississippi

September 18, 2005

Albany- An Albany church is partnering with a church in Pascagoula, Mississippi to collect food and necessary items for Katrina victims in need. An assessment team will leave Thursday from Sherwood Baptist Church with supplies, mostly food for families in Pascagoula, MS.

The church is collecting goods in a trailer in Sherwood's parking lot. They're asking for foods people would want to eat for meals, like pasta and sauce that will be easy to prepare.

"When we pulled up with a truck of supplies last week, the first thing they said was do you have any food, and so we found there are a lot of teams down there working, but they need people who could prepare food for the people who are working and doing a lot of things," said Andy Goode, Sherwood Missions Pastor.

They're also collecting diapers. September 26th the church will send 25 volunteers to Mississippi to help rip out wet carpet, prepare meals for workers and help out with other needs in the community. Sherwood is collecting donations for the trip from nine to five Monday through Friday.
