The following update is provided by Randall Leonard,
Director of IMPACT Ministries at Colonial Presbyterian Church
Here is the most up-to-date list of needs for the Joplin area. New needs are being brought forward with the intense heat and weather.
Cases of Gatorade
Spray on Sunscreen
Aloe Vera Gel
Neosporin ointment or triple antibiotic ointment
Antiseptics like Benedryl
Diapers (all sizes)
Cases of baby food
Baby formula & bottles
Tooth brushes (individually wrapped is best)
Tooth paste & Denture paste
New wash clothes
New hand towels
Depends - small and medium sizes
Liquid laundry soap
Non perishable food supplies…such as canned protein (chicken & tuna) and peanut butter.
New Creation Church is feeding 200+ people breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. They have a need of perishable food items such as eggs, milk, fresh fruits & vegetables and sack lunch items (bread, sliced meats, and cheeses).
New Bibles (NIV or NLT)
Walmart gift cards are being requested for personal items
Coolers (cube shaped) on wheels for ice storage
Plastic storage bins
Trash bins on wheels
The need for the plastic storage bins is great! As people find some of their belongings-many become discouraged because when they find something they have no way to store & protect it.
Urgently needed household items:
Electric cooking or campsite cooking equipment
Working small appliances
If anyone has a used bucket truck for sale or loan it would be tremendously helpful for clearing trees and yard debris.
