Gaines Chapel AME Church, which is home to one of Churches United's food pantries in East Moline, is totally flooded with flood and sewer waters.  Although the church sanctuary is still functional, the entire downstairs, which includes the fellowship hall and common areas, has been flooded.  This common area is also where the food pantry is located and has been functioning as a food pantry for over 20 years!  After the waters recede, the pantry will be in need of individuals to help clean up and in need of resources to replace refrigerators, freezers, etc.  There isn't any timetable set up as of yet.  For those who use the food pantry, Christ United Methodist Church will be taking all of Gaines' clients.  Please keep the pantry, its volunteers and the people who must utilize another food pantry while this is closed in your prayers. Thank you from Churches United of the Quad City Area.
