Clio sends supplies and water to Amory, Mississippi

Listening to the news about the path of destruction that the tornados left behind in Amory, Mississippi, brought sadness to many people—including those in the town of Clio.

Diane Hayes, of Old Clio United Methodist Church, Clio, decided to speak to the church family about assisting the victims.

The church decided it would do all it could to assist by sending supplies, water and other items to those in need. The supplies were sent to St. James UMC in Amory, Mississippi.

The process for collecting the items began in April. Items collected were food, household goods, water, cleaning products, clothing, shoes and other items that could benefit the families. Upon hearing the news of the church’s mission to help, other community members, friends and churches also assisted. Many said it was a great time of rejoicing, seeing everyone working together doing what God has called all to do by loving and caring for neighbors. This was a significant ministry for the Old Clio UMC family, and they said helping others truly blessed them in many ways.

The pastor is the Rev. Sandra Stubbs.
