Hurricane Sandy Clean-up

If you haven't signed-up or encouraged hubby to sign up to help on the Hurricane Sandy work crews...see link from Bishop below. Well worth it. Feels good to help out where need is great.


From Bishop Behunin:

Brothers and Sisters,

The Hurricane Sandy Relief project is ongoing and our ward is organizing crews for the following days: Saturday, December 1st; Saturday December 8th; Sunday December 9th; Saturday December 15th; and Sunday December 23rd.

Many of the families impacted by this storm are still trying to recover from the damage to their homes and property. This is an opportunity to serve people who are in need.

We need volunteers for each of the days listed above including this Saturday, December 1st.

If you are interested in participating in this service project please, sign-up by copying the following link to the sign-up spreadsheet.
 Sincerely, Bishop Behunin

From Devon Linn:

1. Also, if you aren't able to help because you aren't physically able but would be willing to assist in watching another sister's children so that she might serve, OR if you are able to assist but would need childcare, please let me or Connie Thorneloe (thorneloefamily [at] know and we will try to arrange something. 

2. Hurricane Sandy Relief Toy Drive

The youth from our ward are asking for our assistance with their combined Young Men/Young Women Toy Drive to benefit Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts. 

We have two ways to donate: Drop a new, unwrapped toy in the box in the foyer between 11/26- 12/11 OR Donate gently used toys (but still gift condition) by contacting youth or their leaders.

So start watching for good deals on toys and games or start going through things you may have purchased and not used much and see if you have some things that are still in nice enough condition to give as a gift for someone who has lost everything. 

This is a great way we can support our youth AND help those who are in need this holiday.  There is a flyer attached as well with the dates and information, so watch for the donation boxes and let's be generous this holiday season!

  1. Ellen, thank you so much for the pictures. It is heartbreaking to see the amount of total loss, and it really puts things in perspective. I'm so glad you went. I'm sure it was a great experience!
