Thank you all you volunteers! As of 7 PM, Wednesday, July 30, 2014, 108 Families have been helped by the Churches of Christ Disaster Relief Effort from the Pateros church building. Of these families, 44 suffered a total loss of their homes and of those, 38 families have no insurance! A total of about 290 people have been helped from the building.
The city has running water now and electrical power, thanks to the utility crews from Grant, Chelan, Douglas, Yakima, and Okanogan Counties. We are starting to see people come back to their homes to start cleaning up spoiled refrigerators and freezers. We are soliciting for trash bags, rubber gloves, sponges, baking soda and vinegar. The fervor has begun to die down from the initial rush and now begins the arduous process of rebuilding lives.
This is a wonderful volunteer effort! A total of 57 people have volunteered their services for one day or more: 8 from the Pateros church, 26 from the Kings Orchard church, 12 from the Cashmere church, and 9 from other churches. The total number of volunteer hours as of 7 PM, Wednesday, July 30, was 1,107.5 hours.
