I wanted you to see this image of the sheer destruction many areas of Western Kentucky are facing in the aftermath of last month's tornadoes...

This is why we're here and it's why we've worked almost non-stop since Christmas to launch our Beacon of Hope Kitchen to serve this region.

Today, we'll serve hundreds more meals to tornado victims. We've also built out the Beacon of Hope to house volunteer teams who are coming to the area to help with the cleanup and the rebuild. Mercy Chefs is providing one of the epicenters of long-term relief, and we totally depend on the faithful generosity of friends like you.

If you already donated to our Kentucky tornado relief, THANK YOU SO MUCH! If you haven't yet helped or can help us again, we'll put your gift to work serving disaster victims. Just $50 will help sponsor about 14 meals; $100 will feed about 7 families of four. Go here to make your tax-deductible gift.

Thanks and God bless!

Gary LeBlanc, Mercy Chefs

P.S. We are so grateful for the many faithful volunteers who help prepare and serve meals at our Beacon of Hope. Go here to see our recent Facebook post featuring Debbie, one of our volunteers who helped serve glazed ham with grilled pineapple to disaster victims this week.
