Included are several photos of First Central Congregational United Church of Christ members taking furniture to Hamburg, Iowa where over 160 homes were destroyed by recent floods. A group of volunteers took a 17 foot U-Haul truck, two pick ups, and a trailer filled with furniture donated by our congregation. A special thanks to the following helpers: Jim Harmon, Lamar Jones, Evan Milton, Terry Beranek, Martin Richards, Kelly Beaman, Don Ferber, Chris Andersen, Chad Mitchell, David Love, David Fortina, Bill & Barb Switzer. There is also photos of our sister UCC congregation Trinity United Church, the gym at the school, and photos of Hamburg residents who helped us unload. About 20 of our church members gave the furniture. Thank you to everyone who donated their time and items.
