Last week was a deadly and disaster filled week, wildfires in Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina followed by deadly tornadoes and damaging thunderstorms in Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee. As each disaster struck, Operation Compassion was there to help survivors piece their lives back together.

Operation Compassion has established disaster relief sites at the Seymour, TN Church of God with Pastor Scott Turner, the Purpose Church of God in Pigeon Forge with Pastor Joel Arwood and with Pastor Tom Sterbens and the New Hope Church in Sevierville.
As the flood waters recede in some sections of the Baton Rouge, LA area, Operation Compassion began its second week of disaster relief efforts. Last week, 9 semi-trailers were delivered loaded with supplies and products necessary to begin clean-up and to sustain survivors.
Operation Compassion is partnering with Feed the Children to help the church provide kids with the supplies they need to go back to school. Through this unique partnership, you can get a standardized set of backpacks and supplies delivered right to your door for significantly less than retail price. Then your church can get “hands-on” to assemble them and deliver them to kids in your community.
Huggies and The National Diaper Bank Network have partnered with Operation Compassion and local relief agencies to donate 200,000 Huggies diapers to West Virginia families in need. In addition, our friends across Kimberly-Clark Corporation (United States) have also answered the call; Pull-Ups, GoodNites, Kleenex, U by Kotex, Cottenelle and Viva Towels have made significant donations to the relief effort as part of our commitment to providing essentials for a better life.
