There are plenty of necessities available at the Gridley Distribution Center.


Bishop Megan made a mid-week visit to Gridley on Wednesday, Aug. 21. She was able to visit with the folks at St. Timothy's, Gridley, including the Rev. Mary Boeger and the Rev. Dan Boeger.

Bishop Megan and the group from St. Timothy's were also able to check out the Gridley Distribution Center. Camp Fire survivors who are in need of services and basic goods, can come and find what they need as they rebuild their lives.

While she was in town, she, along with members of the Camp Fire Long-Term Recovery Team, also visited the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) village that is being built for survivors of the Camp Fire. FEMA is constructing a village of temporary housing that will be able to hold approximately 400 survivors.

Heavenly Father, whose blessed Son came not to be served but to serve: Bless all who, following in his steps, give themselves to the service of others; that with wisdom,patience, and courage, they may minister in his Name to the suffering, the friendless, and the needy; for the love of him who laid down his life for us, your Son our Savior Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
