December 3, 2017...In Memory Of

Today we celebrated the life of a dear volunteer, Nancy Perry (92 yrs old), who recently passed away peacefully at home in her favorite chair.  What a joy she was to us while we served together.  Nancy helped us sort donations with a smile on her face and loved to know she was making a difference in the community. After having surgery five or so years ago, it was too difficult for her to help but we always felt her support when greeting each other at church. "How is Reach & Restore going?" she asked every time.  To those of you who have donated in her memory, THANK YOU.  We are honored and know Nancy is beaming from above!

Winter air has swept through our state earlier this year!  We sped through the light jacket days and are already seeing a high demand for warm outerwear in all sizes.  A few XXL and XXXL Adult Coats are very important for us to have on hand.

If you would like to help by donating any used, clean, warm winter coats, long johns, boots, snow pants, scarves, gloves or hats please give us a call!

Other items needed are boys clothing, plus size clothing, beds, small couches, small kitchen tables, blankets, can openers, coffee makers, and toasters.

It's always fun to see our supporters during the week!  We are thankful for you all!

On the anniversary of the tragic happenings of 2001 and recent storms in the south, we are reminded that we shouldn't take anything for granted!

One day, one event, one decision can change everything.

Reach & Restore was launched because Hurricane Katrina forced us to think about taking action to improve a life of a neighbor in need or transition. Once again, the situations we are seeing on tv and online this month are very hard to imagine. Fortunately, help is much more organized and efficient than in 2005.

Did you know that every day in our own city, people lose everything and struggle to get back on their feet?  Reach & Restore is dedicated to caring, assisting and providing hope in our area with your support.

Thank you for your mercy and compassion. We trust God will use us to provide here... and there.
