The 6 Miller Media Group radio stations simulcast a one hour special called “A Season of Hope: Faith, Family and Friends” on Friday afternoon. The program featured Pastor Michael Evanchak, president of the Taylorville Ministerial Association that oversees the Taylorville Food Pantry; and Pastor Bill Kerns, who is with the Missions for Taylorville program. The program was meant to encourage the Taylorville community after the devasating tornado that hit the city last Saturday, leaving some 300 structures damaged, 30 homes destroyed, and 30 people injured.
Pastor Evanchak told listeners about how the Taylorville Food Pantry, located at 1429 East Main Cross, has been assisting those in need, before and during the tornado disaster.
Pastor Kerns told listeners the Missions for Taylorville committee is working out details to accept applications to help those whose homes have been damaged.
Pastor Kerns added that Missions for Taylorville now has a way to give to their non-profit organization directly, on-line. You can find that link on the “Tornado Recovery Assistance” page on taylorvilledailynews.com.
