Timothy Ruppel lives in Slidell, where Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005, and where tens of thousands of volunteers have participated in the clean up and rebuilding.

Timothy shares, "I put together 6 Hygiene "Gifts of the Heart" Kits, and mailed them yesterday. I bought these kits largely in gratitude to the continuing efforts PDA and others have done in and around New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina. Your faithful response here in Christ has changed me, and I thank you."

For several years following Hurricane Katrina, Tim's church marked the anniversary with an offering taken to support the work of PDA. Once the church completed this, Tim still wanted a way to continue the tradition. Not wanting to send a check, he found information on the web site about a way to help through the Gift of the Heart Kits ministry.

Thank you, Tim.
