We ask that everyone be attentive and drive within the posted speed limit, especially in the school zones during morning and afternoon hours. Remember that S Franklin St is one way (southbound only) between Kirk St and Stevens St during those times. Officers will be conducting increased patrols and strict enforcement of traffic laws in the school zones. We have many students who walk to and from school in addition to those being dropped off and picked up by parents or buses. Slow down, pay attention and help keep our children safe.
Folks, don't forget that Main St will be closed between Swink St and Ketchie St tomorrow (Saturday, Sept 23). Plan accordingly if you're driving in the area.
We need YOU. Yes you, the person reading this post. You can have fun and make a difference by getting involved with the kids in our community. How? By coaching for China Grove Youth Baseball/Softball.
Folks please make sure you are prepared in the event that we receive inclement weather due to Hurricane Irma.
The second stop in Texas was where the idea for this trip began. It is where several members of the team had family. What began as a personal trip to take supplies to family grew into a full blown relief effort. When we arrived, we were overwhelmed by the piles of debris in front of every home. Furniture, flooring, drywall and appliances piled so high you could barely see the fronts of houses. Cars lined the streets because garages had become the hub of the homes. Children played in driveways, families talked and worked on cleaning out one another's homes. The local fire department had sat up a tent at the entrance to the neighborhood were supplies were collected and meals prepared. There were no large disaster organizations helping. Strangers, and neighbors were doing the work to make homes livable and salvage precious belongings. As we began to talk with folks, we heard that an area that had not flooded in 50 years was suddenly overtaken by water, leaving people with no way out. They would eventually be rescued by volunteers on boats of every type. When the waters receded, they returned to begin the process of cleaning up. Where you would expect to find despair, we found hope. People talked of how strangers came together to help one another. They welcomed us into their neighborhood and homes, showing us the work that had been done and all that was still to do. There were tears but there was also laughter because, “you have to find something to laugh about”. They were reluctant to accept supplies because they insisted that others needed them more. They would rebuild, they would move forward and they would be okay. We unloaded supplies at the fire department tent where people could go to find the things they needed like contractor bags, bleach, diapers, and cases of water. We lingered, shared one more hug, heard assurances that they would be okay, shook hands with people who now felt like our family. We didn’t take photos because it was too personal, too raw, people's lives during the most difficult time most would ever experience. What we did take was a renewed sense of unity and hope. They were safe and they would be okay. We would all be okay because when it matters, when tragedy strikes, people come together and differences no longer matter. The photo posted here is of the neighborhood during the flooding.
This was our first stop in Texas. Eagle Heights Fellowship was serving as a shelter for those displaced by flooding. They served hundreds of people and their pets. They welcomed us as if we were old friends, showing us around and even provided us with supper. Eagle Heights Fellowship didn't merely provide shelter to the folks staying there. We learned they set up a hair salon and held church services with even the pets attending. Children played as we were shown how stacks of chairs were used to give a sense privacy around a family's cots. The fire department was in the parking lot showing children the fire truck and a sheriff's deputy stopped by and said hello. We unloaded the needed donations and talked to people about how they had been impacted by the hurricane. We wish we could have stayed longer but we were on a tight schedule with two more stops before heading back to NC. The folks at Eagle Heights showed us that serving the community is more than providing a roof and a cot. It's about feeding the heart and soul as much as feeding the belly. It's about welcoming a pet because they are family too. It's about braiding a little girl's hair and serving as a base to deliver meals to an entire community. We hope we blessed them as much as they blessed us.
As we acknowledge those who played a key role in making the Texas Relief trip possible, we have to acknowledge those within the police department as well as town hall. Chief Andrew Deal went above and beyond in getting the Penske truck when donations exceeded the available trailers. Officers donated and assisted in collecting, packing and loading donations. They also covered shifts so that CGPD could participate in delivering the supplies to Texas. The administration of the Town of China Grove as well as the China Grove Police Department never once hesitated in doing whatever was needed to make this possible. Thank you!
