They shipped out more than a hundred kits.

For the church, it was all about giving to the community.

"In times like this it's even more important that we mobilize together as people of faith and people not of faith to come together and to serve people right here in our local communities as well as people around the world," said Phil Burkhart, lead pastor of Ashland Gracepoint Church of the Nazarene.

The Church of the Nazarene has sent more than 10 thousand disaster kits to the areas effected by hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
