Mission group collecting donations after Joaquin sinks ship
A Kentucky mission group is asking for the public’s help after Hurricane Joaquin sank the ship carrying supplies it was sending to Haiti.
Waves of Mercy in Versailles spent a year collecting supplies, including 400 bars of soap, 600 pounds of peanut butter, 800 pounds of shoes, and 38 barrels of clothes, LEX 18 in Lexington reports. All 12 crew members were saved when the ship sank.
The group is asking for donations of items and money to replace what was lost from the ship. To make a donation and for more information, visit mercysaves.org, or call Lori Conley at 614-506-3604.
