Operation Compassion Assists Victims of Flood and Poverty in West Virginia

By , August 3, 2001

Approximately 25 members of Canton Temple of Praise, located in Canton, Ohio, arrived on Friday, August 3 in Holden, West Virginia to assist the Benevolence Ministry, Operation Compassion, to distribute items which were gathered by the Canton Temple of Praise in a semi-trailer. These items include clothing, toys, household items and appliances which will be distributed to area residents who are victims of poverty and the recent flooding. Southwestern West Virginia has been plagued with flooding and continual rains for the last few weeks. Some of the area residents have literally watched as their homes have been washed away by the floodwaters.

The team will be taking enough clothes for 300 children and 300 adults. They will be housed in the Appalachian Dream Center, a benevolence outreach center, that feeds 150 people daily and will be helping to renovate their facility.

For further information about the Appalachian Dream Center, contact Reverend Hartwell at 304-687-5085. The Operation Compassion team consists of men, women and children who have a desire to reach out to those who are hurting.
