Hendricks Chapel to Host Hurricane Relief Service Day
Hendricks Chapel will host Hurricane Relief Service Day on Saturday, Oct. 28, from 11:45 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Volunteers will park in the Manley Field House North lot and meet in Manley Field House. In teams of 6-10, they will drive into surrounding communities to collect canned food and dry goods exclusively to support relief efforts for storm survivors in affected communities. Volunteers are welcome to show up with their own contributions also. Afterwards, volunteers from Abundant Life will sort the goods and prepare them for shipment to one of the affected areas.
To thank volunteers after the event, lunch will be provided, along with games, giveaways, contests and prizes for teams that collect the most goods.
Those wishing to volunteer should sign up at alcclife.org/life. For more information, contact Nathan Bliss at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event is sponsored by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Abundant Life. It is a joint effort by Syracuse University student organizations.
