BRONXVILLE, N.Y. - The Village Lutheran Church, Lutheran Women’s Missionary League, in Bronxville recently led a successful drive to raise money for "We Care Tubs."
Nearly $800 was collected for the tubs, which come packed with items that residents might need as they clean up following the flooding in Baton Rouge, La.
"There are thousands of families that need help after the Baton Rouge flooding, and the need is growing with the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew in the South East,” said one member of LWML.
The tubs are a cost-effective and easy way to assemble all the kitchen goods that a family needs when returning to their home, according to a release from the Village Lutheran Church.
The goal was to sponsor two complete tubes; the group not only met this goal but exceeded it, the release said.
“Thank you for your outreach efforts VLC," said Rev. Dr. Robert Hartwell, senior pastor at Village Lutheran Church. "Great job of sharing the love of Christ."
