Recovery efforts in Gainesville

By  | 

GAINESVILLE -- Residents are still recovering after the massive floods earlier this week, and a local church is stepping up and helping those that are still in need on Wednesday.

First News reporter Daniel Gotera was in Gainesville with Pastor Ronnie Quaid to talk about what his church is doing to aide flood victims in Cooke County.

The Commerce Street Church of Christ opened their doors Wednesday afternoon to families in need, passing out everything from food to cleaning supplies to bottled water.

The supplies were provided by the National Churches of Christ Organization.

Organizers say it's the least they could do to help their community.

"It's a part of what we're about. The Lord commands us to be generous and help out in unfortunate circumstances," said Pastor Quaid.

They will also be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

They need: cleaning supllies, food, baby supplies, and personal care items.

The church is located at 602 North Commerce Street in Gainesville.
