Operation Compassion, God’s Pit Crew Assist in School Rebuild

Earlier this summer when the Arkansas River crested more than 40 feet out of its banks, towns all along the river were flooded. One such town was Moffett, Oklahoma where every structure was affected by the flood waters. Moffett School, serving pre-k through 8th grade, sustained significant damage.

In an effort to help the Moffett School, God’s Pit Crew (GPC) has undertaken to rebuild it. Their Crisis Response Crew has been on sight tearing out and replacing and rebuilding everything they can so that the school can open on time this fall. It has been an enormous project.

A few weeks ago, GPC notified Operation Compassion of some specific needs for replenishing the school supplies and office supplies for the school. Operation Compassion loaded a semi-trailer with supplies to outfit offices such as file cabinets, desks, office chairs, shredders, projections screens, legal pads, food trays and copy paper. Also included were schools supplies for the students including backpacks, binders, kids desks, pencils, tablets, pens, paint, markers and paper.

“Operation Compassion and GPC have been partners in disaster relief and assisting communities for 20 years,” said Dave Lorency, director of Operation Compassion. “This project in Moffett is just one of many we have undertaken together. When agencies partner, twice as much can be accomplished.”
