On Nov. 2, a total of 13 volunteers touched 800 lives with a small band of helpers from South Georgia.  CPCO of Georgia and P.E.S.T. Relief International sent forces to the front lines of Marianna, Fla., a city devastated by Hurricane Michael on Oct. 10.  This small little town was desperately waiting for aid.  Marty and Cindy Jones, along with Steve Hall, partnered with New Hope Baptist Church to cook and distribute 800 hamburgers to the community, some of which some had not eaten a hot meal since the storm.  Others in the area joined in the efforts of the Georgians and brought bread and packaged foods to distribute as well.

“There is a great need for clean-up that FEMA can’t provide. They are doing their best, but the devastation is overwhelming. Once FEMA pulls trees off the houses, someone else has to remove them and repair the damage,” Cindy Jones of Prestige Pest Control and a Red Cross Veteran, said.

On Dec. 6-8, P.E.S.T. Relief will send another team back to the area.  This time they will be in Wewahitchka, Fla., to help repair and restore the Taunton Family Children’s Home.  The team will be removing trees, clearing debris as well as replacing mattresses and bedding that were damaged by the flooding.  The children will be participating in a soccer clinic, with food and fun to follow the active day.  And every child and house parent will be presented with a Christmas gift to demonstrate the unconditional love that God has for mankind.

P.E.S.T.  Relief International is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization for the pest control industry to bring comfort and relief to those who are orphaned, abused, or at-risk.  

If you would like to volunteer or fund this project, your tax-deductible contribution can the organization achieve maximum impact as they return to help.
