Congleton-Hacker Construction Company is generously donating hundreds of stoves, refrigerators, washers, dryers, couches, chairs, desks, drawers, cabinets and much more from a large student housing apartment complex they are renovating in Louisville, Kentucky. These items will go to families in eastern Kentucky recovering from the flood.
Together for Hope Appalachia is working with Jim Garrett with VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster), Christian Appalachia Project, Methodist Mountain Mission, and other non-profits, to get these items out to families who need them.
Jim Garrett, is an ordained minister with the Presbyterian Church and recently retired from service with Kentucky Emergency Management. For nearly two decades, Jim was the state emergency management liaison to faith based and community organizations.
To manage this project, TFH Appalachia has enlisted the help of project manager, Brent Bowden. Brent has recently moved to the area, with his wife, Dr. Anna Bowden, who was named Assistant Professor of New Testament at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. Brent previously served as Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church of Rochester, New York.
This is a wonderful opportunity to help families who have lost everything. Together for Hope is urgently seeking volunteers to get these items out of the apartments and into trucks for transport so the construction company can begin renovation. The first Christian Appalachia Project truck has been filled and delivered. Brent anticipates that it will take around 35 tractor trailer loads to finish the job.
