Local disaster ministry needs help

7.10.14:  Covenant CRC Furniture Ministry looking for donations


This week’s storm and tornado did damage to the Kentwood and Wyoming area and there are many homes and businesses that are working to recover.


A local ministry that usually helps others in times of need is now looking for donations of its own.  Bob Storteboom with the Furniture Ministry at Covenant CRC says they are unable to help others now because they lost many of the donated items due to storm damage.


Items are usually donated by church members and local furniture stores. Much of it was damaged.  Most of their moving equipment was damaged, as well as storage racks, bed frames, Bibles and Christian literature.


If you can help, you can drop off a donation at the church parking lot where a trailer will be set up to accept donations.  The church is located at:  7171 Willard Avenue, S.E. Grand Rapids.   (616) 455-5120.
