While working with ServeMoore.com to help link those who had needs with those who had items/services to donate, I was amazed at some of the situations volunteers have been able to resolve. It often takes clever thinking and resourcefulness to connect the dots. Now, if someone had told me about this effort called Sheds of Hope before I worked with ServeMoore, I wouldn’t have thought much of it.
But then I started reading the horror stories from tornado victims.
“We had some of our things in storage before the tornado. I can see our storage unit and it’s intact, but the storage company said they’re not allowing anyone in for safety reasons... They’re planning to bulldoze our unit on Saturday.”
Now I see how Sheds of Hope offers the perfect solution for families with an immediate need for storage as they begin the process of rebuilding.
Sheds of Hope will be building permanent, on-site storage for tornado victims to use while their homes are being restored/rebuilt. Families will own their sheds outright, meaning they will not pay storage fees and won’t be subject to the whims of a storage company. And since this is all sponsored by The Presbyterian Church of North America’s Mission to North America (MNA) and their partner churches and organizations, the sheds will be built at no cost to the homeowner.
Some families may even be interested in helping to build their own sheds, a positive and proactive endeavor which Sheds of Hope believes will remind them of the hope of The Lord.
