Thursday, March 26 at 11:00 a.m. - Southeast Christian Church will host an urgent COVID-19 supplies and food drive from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Friday, March 27, and Monday, March 30, at seven of its campuses.
As the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus has increased, Southeast has worked with community leaders throughout the state to identify hospitals and clinics experiencing dangerous shortages in supplies needed to continue care for patients. In addition, area food banks are facing shortages due to an increase in need but a decrease in donations.
The following items are urgently needed:
- Masks (N95 and other types, e.g. surgical, dust, auto repair, painting, and bicycle)
- Disposable gloves (all sizes and types)
- Alcohol (70%)
- Surgical gowns and foot covers
- Hand sanitizer
- Disinfectant wipes
- Face shields or visors
- Canned Meat
- Pasta and pasta sauce
- Dry breakfast items
- Canned vegetables and fruit
- Peanut butter
- Macaroni and cheese
- Any other in-date, non-perishable foods
In an effort to follow social distancing guidelines, donors will be able to drive up to the front door at each campus and pop open the trunk of their vehicle. A volunteer wearing gloves will remove the donations,
place a donation receipt inside, and close the trunk.
Please Note: If you or someone in your home is exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms (including fever,cough, and shortness of breath), we ask that you keep these supplies for personal use.

Blankenbaker Campus 920 Blankenbaker Parkway, Louisville, KY 40243
Indiana Campus 1309 Charlestown New Albany Road, Jeffersonville, IN 47130
