During this unprecedented time of COVID-19 New St. Hurricane is doing what we can to Serve Our City, always mindful that "We are here for GOOD, not here for US"
NSH, as part of the outreach of our Hurricane HYPE Center, we are preparing to serve our city in new and innovative ways. We are excited to influence our community with church-based compassion. We need your help to help us serve our city. We will be serving on a monthly basis. How can you engage in service?
First of all we need your help setting up our City Serve Storage areas. This needs to be done ASAP. If you can help us set up our storage areas please let us know by calling 870-536-8337 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
