On Tuesday, August 27, a fire in Silver Spring burned down an apartment complex, displacing 100 residents and hospitalizing 10.
Sligo is teaming up with ACS to provide the assistance these families so desperately need. This Sabbath (August 31) we are collecting:
- School Supplies (Elementary-HS)
- Toiletries/Personal Items
- Emergency Fund
Out of the 25 families affected, only 3 had insurance. These families are starting over again with nothing. We are collecting funds to help these families with the first month’s rent after relocation.
God is working through us in our community. Whichever way you choose, help make a difference. We need all hands on deck!
ITEMS CAN BE BROUGHT TO SLIGO SDA CHURCH at 7700 Carroll Ave. Takoma Park, MD on Friday Morning 9:00 am – noon. Saturday morning 8:45 am – 12:30 pm and Sunday Morning till 1pm in the Sligo Youth Room (basement)
