Henryville Indiana Tornado Relief

On March 2, 2012, a tornado damaged over 400 homes around Henryville, IN which is 20 miles north of Louisville, Kentucky. West Ohio has an opportunity to work with V.R.O.C. (Volunteers Rebuilding Our Community), who are coordinating long term recovery from many denominations and support groups. This will be a general construction project. West Ohio has been asked that we provide one person to help in the kitchen during our stay. We will be coordinating this through Kingsley United Methodist Church of Van Wert, Ohio. This is their third trip.
