Operation Compassion Prepares for Hurricane Irene

By , August 26, 2011

Operation Compassion has been monitoring Hurricane Irene since it was apparent the path she would take. Earlier this week preparations were made ready for her eventual landfall. Up and down the eastern seaboard, Operation Compassion and its network of disaster relief partners have been staging relief products for shipment and preparing disaster relief sites in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and New York.

“Our partners are ready to move,” according to David Lorency, president of Operation Compassion. “Everything is in place and ready at a moment’s notice,” Lorency continued.

Our disaster relief partners, God’s Pit Crew, Mercy Chefs and the Chaplain’s Commission are ready with everything from heavy equipment for debris removal to mobile kitchens ready to feed thousands of hot meals to volunteers ready to assist. Our product partners, Soles4Souls, Feed the Children, major television ministries and mega-church pastors have donated warehouse space just outside the hurricane area and are staging product. Operation Compassion has its plan ready to swing into action. The deciding factor is Irene and where she will make her presence known.

As with any disaster, Operation Compassion needs your financial help to be able to mobilize and respond with all our resources. Please make a donation before Hurricane Irene hits the east coast.
