Fort Wayne churches unite for Michael relief effort

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): A group of Fort Wayne churches is partnering up to help the survivors of Hurricane Michael. Rick Hawks, Senior Pastor of The Chapel, tells WOWO News they’re gathering a number of necessary items for those who lost everything:

“We’ll be collecting through Wednesday,” Hawks says. “The hope is that the truck will leave Fort Wayne on Thursday. The Chapel has taken an active role in disaster relief ever since Hurricane Katrina, and we found that the first response is usually for basic needs.”

Specifically, the collection effort is gathering 18-gallon plastic totes, nonperishable food items, water, and diapers and feminine hygiene products.

You can drop off donations at the following locations on or before October 24th:
