Lynchburg Resident Working to Create Church Response Network
Lynchburg, VA- A Lynchburg resident wants churches to be better prepared to help out during emergencies.
After June's wind storm, some churches helped people in need with water, shelter and supplies. William Cabell wants to create a network of churches to respond in times of need. The group would be called Churches United to Help Humanity. His idea is to get churches to put $100 a month in a fund to use for emergency relief, and other assistance.
"You have people in the community who may need help with their electricity or fuel assistance or whatever. When they go to social services a lot of people don't qualify," said Cabell.
Cabell is still waiting on responses from churches. He hopes to start up the church network this fall.
