Helping the Hungry

Dan Reany - 700 Club Producer

After a deadly EF-4 tornado ripped through Dawson Springs, Kentucky, people struggled to feed their families while they rebuilt their homes. 

“For a small town and for us to go through this,” says Pam. “We lost seventy-five percent of our town. It's a very scary feeling.”

Sally says, “We're worrying, ‘Will there be for next week? Can we make this stretch?’ There are honestly some that still don't have food to eat. We're just a tiny little town with a great big heart.”

In the wake of this devastation, Operation Blessing hosted a food distribution to help those in need.

Dawson Springs mayor, Chris Smiley:

“We're so grateful that Operation Blessing has come in today, and they have blessed so many people,” says Chris. “They had cars backed up five blocks, and they're still coming in. They're going to give everything that’s on that truck away, so that it’s a great day.”

Jesse says, “We're just now starting to rebuild. The long-term recovery is trying to get everything fired up and going. So, you know, we're in it for the long haul, and we're glad Operation Blessing is as well.”

Thanks to Operation Blessing partners, families received emergency meal kits full of rice, pasta, tuna, canned vegetables, and other staples. They also received hams right before Easter.

“We're going to get to have a ham dinner now for Easter,” says Sally. “I’m sorry, it's very humbling. But, yeah, it means a lot to us. It really does.”

Pam says, “It is truly a blessing. It's God-sent. I just want to thank y'all. God bless you all and may the light shine upon y'all.”

“We try to take care of one another,” says Sally. “And that's what God intends for us to do, you know? Is to look out for each other, love one another, and take care of each other. And thank you all for helping to take care of us.”
