They, along with members fom the Church of Christ spent days in preparation for the event. The group’s ready to handle as many as 150 people, that number coming from the United Way’s flood victim list. All supplies were donated by The Churches of Christ Disaster Relief Effort, Inc. in Nashville, Tennessee, a city recently hit hard by its own set of flash floods.
