With broken hearts, we are all aware of the devastation that has taken place in Oklahoma. The pictures and videos that we have all seen on the news will stay with us for a long time. Many of us have cried over the children and others whose lives were lost, and we have rejoiced over the stories of true miracles that have taken place.

At CablesAndKits, one of our core values is to ‘Serve Others”. We feel this is a prime opportunity to serve the people and communities affected by this tragic event, and at the same time share the love of Christ with them.  The families that are affected by this disaster have immediate physical needs and we want to help. We also need to keep them in mind and in prayer as they continue to recover and work through all of the emotions during this time.

CablesAndKits is joining with Journey Church, a local church in the area affected, to help serve the communities that have been destroyed by the tornadoes. In speaking with the church, their immediate needs are both money and supplies. CK and staff are going to help and we want to get the word out to all of you so you know the ways in which you can help also.

Two of our awesome team members, Denisia and Jordan, are spearheading this initiative and have been working very hard to get everything set up here at the office.  We are making our office available as a collection site for others in the community and surrounding areas that want to contribute supplies.  We are planning several shipments to go out over the next few weeks. All supplies can be brought to our office in Buford, GA and we will take care of getting them to Journey who will then distribute them to those in need.
