PREPARING FOR ISAAC
From the Desk of: Steve Elliott, Grassfire Nation
As Isaac bears down on the Gulf Coast, our friends at Mercy Chefs have already dispatched a disaster relief team toward ground zero of the hurricane’s aftermath.
Isaac is now predicted to make landfall in Louisianna or Mississippi in the next 24 hours as a Catagory 2 Hurricane. The storm's impact will be widespread with expected flooding and wind damage.
The Mercy Chefs team is on their way toward the region to wait out the storm and prepare for service.
On Wednesday, Chef Gary LeBlanc plans to have their mobile kitchen set up and feeding those people hardest hit. For communities ravaged by a natural disaster, time is of the essence.
Mercy Chefs will provide hundreds of hot meals to victims and volunteers every day as needed to cope with the disaster.
Their immediate need is to obtain the food and supplies needed to provide these hot meals.
++That's where Mercy Chefs... and you... come in!
Our Grassfire Team Members have generously supported the work of Mercy Chefs in their prior disaster relief efforts.
This mission of critical care is an opportunity for the Grassfire Nation team to help in a practical way TODAY.
It costs just $10 to provide a hot meal to a family of four; $30 to feed 12 people.
Last year alone, Mercy Chefs helped facilitate over 25,000 meals in disaster-torn regions across the U.S. and an additional 100,000 in Haiti.
With the support of friends like you, Mercy Chefs will be able to help provide hot meals to the people of this ravaged region!
Since time is of the essence, I thank you for your immediate consideration.
P.S. Mercy Chefs has already served hundreds of thousands of meals in places like Missouri, Louisiana, Texas, New York, Arkansas and Alabama - and now has a permanent kitchen facility operating in Haiti! Your gift is fully tax-deductible and since I know Gary personally I'm confident that Mercy Chefs will put your gift to work to help provide hot meals to victims and volunteers in this hard-hit region.
