Catoctin View Mission Project Brings Hope to Kentucky Families in Need

  • News

The church continues its annual tradition of donating items to the Cranks Creek Survival Center in Kentucky’s Harlan County.

In December, the Catoctin View (Thurmont, Md.) church completed one of its annual mission projects by driving a full truck of donated items, including furniture, toys, blankets, and clothes, to Cranks Creek Survival Center in Kentucky, which serves Harlan County residents living below the poverty line. 

Catoctin View church member Tina Gagliardi said that the mission project is an opportunity for the church to give back to those in need. “It’s an opportunity for us to give the things we don’t use. We have so much, and there are people down there who have nothing,” said Gagliardi.

This mission project has been a tradition for the Catoctin View church for many years, and several other churches in the conference have also been actively involved in the project over the years. Many of the Harlan County residents the Cranks Creek Survival Center serves have been severely impacted by natural disasters such as flooding and tornadoes. 

“It’s just a really awesome way for our kids to be involved in something where they can look on the news and see that their stuff went there to help people in that area,” said Gagliardi.
