MORRISTOWN, N.J. (ANS) -- While northern New Jersey communities are just getting back on their feet after Superstorm Sandy, plans are in full motion at Liquid Church to serve Thanksgiving meals to thousands of families still significantly hurt by the storm.
Thousands still remain powerless, homeless and distraught in the Long Beach Island -- Atlantic City, region alone.
According to a news release obtained by the ASSIST News Service, in addition to the meals, truckloads of relief supplies are being collected at all three campus locations of Liquid Church to be distributed on Nov. 22 and 23. Volunteer teams will also be cleaning out houses devastated by the storm that weekend.
Tim Lucas, Lead Pastor at Liquid Church said in the news release, “Amidst all of the devastation and challenges Sandy has brought, we want to be there physically with the families of the Jersey shore this Thanksgiving in order to bring hope to those that need it most right now."
According to the news release, water and canned goods are being collected at all three campuses during Sunday worship services in Morristown, New Brunswick, and Nutley. Distribution of supplies are being carried out in partnership with Shore Fellowship Church, local to the Atlantic City and Long Beach Island, NJ affected areas.
The Morristown-based Christian church is also coordinating support from communities and organizations outside of NJ for the Hurricane SandyThanksgiving project.
The outreach coordination leaders are asking churches across the country to consider taking up a special offering for the Hurricane Sandy victims on the upcoming Sundays - Nov. 11, 18 or 25.
Details of how churches and other organizations can support the relief efforts are available at: www.SandyThanksgiving.com
