Mennonite Disaster Service praises God for the dedication of 3 new homes in High River, AB. Three families moved into their new homes in late April; something they have been looking forward to since their houses were destroyed in the June 2013 floods. This would not have been possible without the donations and MDS volunteers that spent a day, a week, a month or more working selflessly. Thank you!

MDS Volunteers still needed in High River, AB to bring more people home. Families are waiting and MDS leadership is in place, but we need weekly volunteers now and through the summer to rebuild houses that were flooded. Check your schedules, invite your friends and spend a week helping someone move home. Call 1-800-241-8111 to schedule.

Check out in the library this week…
