Immediately after the storm Lakeshore Baptist Church began receiving donations of relief supplies from across the country. We set up a blue-tarp awning on the church property, where the church building used to sit, to hold church services and to distribute the contributions to the community. We snapped the picture above in October of 2005, just weeks after the storm. This effort evolved into our distribution center where we still provide assistance to those attempting to get back on their feet. We now open on Wednesday through Saturday with groceries, clothing, and household items brought in from friends from coast to coast.
