“Last Friday we gave away 40 bags full of items,” said James Holliday, the student ministry pastor. “They were gone in two minutes.” He said students at Potomac Crest had prepared the original bags to give to homeless people before the storm was even an issue, not realizing they would have a sudden need so shortly after.
Since the Red Cross cannot accept item donations for the flood victims, Holliday said Potomac Crest wanted to step in and help fill that need.
