Joliet, Illinois in Need of Volunteers After Being Hit by Two Microbursts Print E-mail
Joliet Damage

On Tuesday, August 26, LCC Disaster Response Team members Ed Boerman and Joel Moritz deployed out in a six-block area in Joliet, Illinois, after that neighborhood was hit by a microburst the night before.

Although the public works has cleared most of the streets of fallen trees, some private residents are still in need of removal. LCC is working with Our Savior Lutheran Church in Joliet.

his area of Joliet is impoverished and populated with many retired shut-ins. Most cannot afford to have the trees taken off of their houses or cut up as they do not have insurance.

Chainsaw teams will be be deployed today and this week to assist these residents, who have little or no insurance to cover the removal.

If you have time this week to help, please contact the LCC office at 866-455-6466 or click the link below.

LCC never charges those we serve, so please consider volunteering (chainsaw people or people to haul cut up wood). Thank you for all of your support in bringing the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those who suffer.

Haiti in Desperate Need of Basic Supplies Print E-mail
On Tuesday, August 26, LCC received the following request:
Greetings in the name of our Savior.

The building projects were finished with LCMS in Haiti over a year ago when the funds ran out from LCMS - but we still have needs with our people.

Haiti Girl with Food

Many people are still asking for a house as they continue to live in tents, some have needs for repair to their roof and so on. LCMS built over 100 houses. The numbers of people living in the tent cities has gone down, but there are still many living in tents.

Haitian Kids with Food

The environment change in some areas is bad. Like, in Jacmel the biggest problem, that those people have now, no latrine for more than 200 families. As many nonprofit organizations leaving the country, so many of them, parent and kids ask for food, clothes, shoes because they have no job or work. The church sometimes distributes shoes to them, we give what we have, we preach, evangelizing , teaching.

The water filter is very good, if we can have 500 that will be very useful ($45 ea). We need bigger one for the school and orphanage. ($750 ea.)

Tim with Kid
    Our need now:
  • 200 toilets (latrine) cost $400 each
  • Feeding some kids at the tent city with $2.50 ea. Child - we have more than 100 to feed 2 times per week.
  • 500 water filter
  • Have a community store we people at the tent city can buy food for less price.
  • Have some school supplies for the school opening.
  • Goat project $40 to 50 per goat

El Comedor St. Matthew Lutheran Church El Comedor Popular Soup Kitchen's old freezer stopped working after being used for the storage of food items used to cook hot meals for thousands of homeless and hungry families through the last years. It is in need of replacement with a new freezer. St. Matthew volunteers would prefer a large upright freezer to prevent damage to the meat and other food items that are bought for cooking of food that continues to be served to the homeless and unemployed week after week. The media recently reported that in the United States one family out of seven need help with food. Any cooperation to help with a new freezer will be deeply appreciated.

Pastor Kenety S. Gee of Chatham Fields Lutheran Church, Chicago

On Friday, August 22, LCC received the following message from Pastor Kenety S. Gee of Chatham Fields Lutheran Church in Chicago:

Dear LCC,
I am writing to ask the audience of your popular weekly newsletter to please help members of Chatham Fields Lutheran Church as we help a family of five from Liberia, West Africa. The family that arrived to the United States is [comprised of a] mother and father with three children - a girl age 15, and two boys ages 8 and 10. They are in need of clothes, household items, school supplies, sanitation materials, and various other items. Gift certificates to Wal-Mart, Target, or Jewel will work really well for them. As always, I thank your very generous audience in advance for hearing the numerous calls for help.

Thanks again and God's abundant blessings always on your lives and ministries.

Serving together,
Rev. Kenety S. Gee
