On Black Friday, three women, Lisa Walters, founder of Bridges of Hope
Charity, Danielle Hayduk, co-founder of The Forever Home Project and longtime
missionary Diane Becker will be leaving Ohio for Long Island, NY to serve hot
food to 800 people at the Salvation Army in Freeport on Saturday, November 24.
Early December they will be shipping donations of items requested by the
residents of the coastline towns directly to the Mayor’s office in Freeport
for distribution. Residents can drop off their wish lists on Saturday the 24th.
Volunteers from Maximo Zion church in OH chipped in to bake cookies, bread
and quick breads for the trip. As this grass-roots effort catches the attention
of local media, new volunteers are joining in and expressing their desire to be
part of an on-going effort to help Long Islanders get back on their feet.
Born from a livingroom conversation by two friends with a similar desire to
help those in need, the Sandy Relief Effort has enlisted the talents of seasoned
disaster relief volunteer workers, The Salvation Army in Freeport, NY, and a
myriad of local companies, organizations and individuals both on Long Island and
Lisa Walters founded the Bridges of Hope Charity in early 2012, to
promote events throughout the year in the Alliance area highlighting Ohio based
individuals and groups that share a common goal of bringing the Word of God,
unity, and harmony to Christ’s Community.
The Forever Home Project is the brainchild of three Ohio real estate
investors, Danielle Hayduk, Brian Woods and Paul Brazie, and addresses the need
for affordable housing for those who aspire to home ownership but cannot qualify
for conventional financing.
