Greenville church collecting supplies for Hurricane Michael relief

Local News

GREENVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – Miami Valley churches continue to aid in the relief efforts as they have for many hurricane seasons.

Trinity Wesleyan church has already loaded up several pallets of water and various other drinks. 

“The community has come together. That’s the cool thing about this. It’s not just one church it’s the church. It’s the people who want to be the hands and feet of Jesus,” said Wess Lynch, an Associate Pastor at Trinity Wesleyan.

Pastor Lynch saw Florence come and go. He felt like he could have been more useful.

“I just woke up super early Tuesday morning and the lord put in my heart that we needed to do something,” said Lynch. 

Lynch reached out to friends at local businesses and got a trailer and some donations. However, that trailer was totaled when it became unhitched earlier this week. 

Thankfully the community stepped up and loaned out another.

“We were watching TV this morning. Channel 2. You had a brief piece on about this church doing stuff for people down south and we decided we would gather stuff up at home and come out and make a contribution,” said Roger Brocious.

The church is asking for tarps along with water. They are also taking monetary donations to help pay for the trip. They don’t plan on staying in a hotel. 

“If you are out there with a trailer or a truck and you are not doing anything for the next couple of days, we invite you to join us. Many hands make light work,” said Lynch. 

The church is located 1400 E Main St. in Greenville.

They plan to leave sometime on Sunday and return as late as Thursday.
