Jasper folks helping neighbors hit by Sunday's storms

People in Jasper are rallying to help their neighbors hard hit by Sunday's storms, and they say you're welcome to help, too. 

The Christian Church of Jasper is leading the relief effort for those hit hardest by Sunday's storms in nearby Washington, Indiana by collecting monetary donations and helping to clean up the mess.

Outreach Minister Ryan Stiles says groups of church members have been visiting Washington to help clean-up this week.

Stiles says the church often sends aid to areas ravaged by tornadoes, such as Henryville and Moore, Oklahoma. He says the people he has met in Washington this week seem to be in good spirits and he says the church will help as long as necessary.

"It's not all about what work you get done. It's so neat to be with the people. We were there with the homeowners yesterday and a business owner. To be able to rub elbows with them and just show them that we love them, God loves them. It's just, we're all one big family," Stiles said.

Once the need in Washington is better understood, the church says they'll start collecting things like canned goods and possibly clothing.

But for now, if you'd like to donate money to this relief effort, you can find information on how to do that on the church's website. Click here for their site.
