DONATE NOW and help send needed Clean Water Systems to the Philippines!
WATER MISSIONS CHALLENGE BEGINS!!!
Fields of Grace is presently seeking to secure matching fund donations NOW!
Due to Super Typhoon Haiyan, said to be the largest storm every recorded in history, and the disaster it has left in its wake in the Philippines, we are directing our efforts to sending in the water system funds for aid NOW. You can help us! An anonymous person in our county has given a large donation to be matched 1 to 1 with the funds given NOW for this effort.
GIVE NOW to help bring safe water to those in need in the Philippines and save lives!
We're in the middle of responding to Typhoon Haiyan and if you're looking to get involved, we'd appreciate the help!
Water Missions currently has staff and water treatment equipment en route to the Philippines capable of providing safe water to 60,000 people. Pending financial support, they are ready to immediately send up to 40 Living Water™ Treatment Systems each capable of providing safe water for 5,000 people. These disaster units cost about $15,000 each.
As you probably know safe water and shelter are the most important needs after a disaster. Without access to safe water, disease spreads quickly. We're grateful for your support and partnership in our effort to meet the immediate needs of the people in the Philippines.
FIELDS of GRACE Chartering a New VENTURING PROGRAM in Schoharie County
Fields of Grace Outreach is now an official chartering organization for a new Troop #4 VENTURING PROGRAM in Schoharie County. VENTURING is a youth development program of the Boys Scouts of America and is coed (boy and girls) ages 14-under 21. If you are 13 and have finished 8th grade you are also eligible to join the VENTURING CREW.
The terrific thing about VENTURING is that it is student led! Whatever program, event, service project, training class, or trip the group wants to do is planned, organized, funded and executed through their efforts. Advisors help direct them to resources and ideas, but the students accomplish their goals through following their own plans. VENTURING seeks to develop the students' leadership and planning skills, financial literacy, value of serving others, and personal growth through all of the ideas the students produce.
GRACE ASSISTANCE AIDS FORT PLAIN, NY
With the early summer storms that ravaged the Fort Plain, NY area, scenes were reminiscent of the Schoharie Valley's destruction of 2011. Fields of Grace Outreach has been able to donate a truck load and car load of water, cleaning supplies, mold abatement supplies, masks, tools, blankets and pillows, and furniture.
As part of our ongoing Emergency Relief and Recovery, we remain prepared to help during disasters such as this. Through generous grants from IBM following Hurricanes Irene and Lee, Fields of Grace has an emergency trailer ready to respond with aid when the need arises.
