Angel Food Ministries is helping families, workers, women and children in Pensacola, Florida, effected by the loss of work and business due to the Gulf oil disaster by sending two tractor trailers loaded with approximately 78 thousand pounds of food at the Gateway Church of Christ in Pensacola on Thursday morning, July 15th, 2010.
Pat Senkow, Angel Food Outreach Minister for the region, said, “We have many oil workers who have come here to take care of the oil that washes up here; meanwhile no one is allowed in the water to fish or otherwise, and we have lost so much due to lack of tourism and commerce.”
Mrs. Senkow said, “In Escambia county we have 1,200 homeless children, and Santa Rosa County has 4,700 known homeless before the oil spoiled what we did have.” “The need is so great,” she said.
“We know that people are hurting. The economy is suffering and people who rely on the Gulf for industry are hurting even more. We do what we can,” Pastor Joe Wingo, Angel Food CEO, said.
