Operation Hope Collecting Supplies for Amityville Area
A Lubbock relief organization is asking for materials to send those affected by last month’s hurricane in the northeast.
Operation HOPE will collect coats, hats, and other supplies until December 14th to send to residents of Amityville, New York. You can drop supplies off at Lindsey’s Day Spa at 1120 West Loop 289 Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“We were contacted by Pastor Jimmy Jack of Freedom Chapel International in Amityville. He asked for our help in assisting the community in their rebuilding efforts,” said Brad Bouma, Operation HOPE board chair. The town of Amityville has a population of 10,000 residents and sits on south Long Island.
“Our church is working as outreach to help people rebuild. I anticipate the entire process will take 18-24 months. During the storm, many people lost their personal belongings. Coats, hats and gloves are a significant need we have today.” said Jimmy Jack, Pastor of Freedom Chapel International in Amityville.
Operation HOPE will also raise funds to help with other needs on the Long Island area and match every dollar raised up to $10,000.
