During a recent effort to collect food and supplies for tornado victims of Georgia, the Fairbury and Steele City Presbyterian Churches were overwhelmed by the generosity of church and community members.
"We received over 6,200 lbs of food and supplies and over $1,000 in monetary donations," Presbyterian Pastor Steven Frazier, said. "We owe the success of this project to the entire extended community for their donations, use of a vehicle and trailer."
Pastor Frazier has personal ties to the area and has kept in contact will fellow pastors and members of the Bartow Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Through his contacts, he realized that there were still needs in the area, long after the Red Cross and FEMA had left.
After one week of publicizing the effort via local radio and newsprint, they were able to fill the entire floor of a borrowed livestock trailer from 81 Trailer Sales of Hebron.
