As a church of neighbors who want more for our community than from our community, it’s time to act to help those impacted by Hurricane Matthew in Virginia Beach.
In fact, we have a “responsability” to help our neighbors regardless of their religious, political, or any other viewpoint they may hold to.
Here are three ways you can help right now.
From the official Facebook page for the city of Virginia Beach:
Community Recovery Center to be Open Wednesday, Oct. 19, 3 to 7 p.m.
The city will continue to operate a community recovery center at Bow Creek Community Recreation Center, 3427 Club House Road, on Wednesday, Oct. 19, from 3 to 7 p.m. Additional dates and times to be determined. Call (757) 385-3111 for the latest information.
Residents who were affected by Hurricane Matthew are reminded and encouraged to go to the recovery center to obtain services. If you have questions, call (757) 385-3111 for information.
