NEW ORGANIZATION, FINDSHELTER.ORG, ESTABLISHED TO CONNECT HURRICANE VICTIMS TO CHURCH SPONSORS FOR LONG-TERM RECOVERY
Rocketown Records artist Shaun Groves signs on as spokesperson

(09/08/05) - Through the cooperation and inspiration of Christians from various denominational backgrounds, a new organization has been established in the past week to provide assistance for Hurricane Katrina victims. FindShelter.org is dedicated to helping families affected by Hurricane Katrina by connecting them with churches and other organizations willing to assist them with long-term recovery.

Rocketown recording artist Shaun Groves joined with the organization this week as both a spokesperson for their work and a partner in the daily planning needed to make relief possible. “Under the oversight of the North American Mission Board, we are matching up families devastated by hurricane Katrina with churches or other Christian groups willing to ‘sponsor’ them for a full year,” Groves said. “Sponsorship would entail meeting every need present in the family: food, shelter, employment, spiritual and psychological counsel, health care etc. We believe it is the Church's responsibility first and foremost to aid these families in need. Only the Church can meet the needs of the whole person, both physical and spiritual. And we hope to be one of many lifelines between the hurting and the Church, helping the helpers find the needy.”

FindShelter.org was established by business partners Carsie Denning, Jr. and Brian Bell with the help of a large, nationwide network of Christian friends. According to Denning, “It has been absolutely amazing to see how God is pulling this effort together through the service of so many people and organizations. Our desire is to bring glory to Him though our efforts to serve the displaced families.”

For more information on how churches and organizations can sponsor families, please visit www.findshelter.org or email info@findshelter.org. Interested parties may also call 910-341-8410.

Team member Bill Bangham, director of photography at the Southern Baptist International Mission Board and board member, along with Denning, of the American Belarusian Relief Organization, is handling media inquiries. He can be reached at BBangham@imb.org or 804-519-4288. Shaun Groves is also available for questions and interviews and can be reached at shaungrovesfanmail@charter.net or through Rocketown Records at 615-503-9994 x29.
