A BIG shout out to them for giving us the resources to refresh, restore and revive

I am a volunteer of my Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Team. We travel to places that have experienced a disaster such as tornado, flooding, hurricane etc. When we arrive at the church site who is housing us during our call out event we use the church showers. There have been 18 of us in the Kalamazoo, Portage area since March 13, 2018.

We called American Red Cross and WMCA of Kalamazoo to find additional showers for our team members so that no one would be taking cold showers after working in flooded homes, removing furniture, carpet, flooring, wallboard, installation etc that had been in flood waters. Both agencies said no. Bronson Athletic Club came to our aid and gave the team volunteers passes to use the facility as long as we were in town. What a Godsend that was for our members. A BIG shout out to them for giving us the resources to refresh, restore and revive after a long day of work.
