CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) — Rescue 82, a local nonprofit, is planning its fourth relief mission to Ukraine.

Kimball Baptist Church Pastor Bruce Howland, an Air Force Veteran, is joining for the first time.

The group will head back to war-torn areas later this month.

In March, six volunteers delivered food and supplies to several villages.

They also brought 120 gift bags to a children’s hospital, evacuee shelter and rec center.

Rescue 82 was founded by Chattanooga Police Sergeant Jeremiah Cook.

It is a Christian non-profit.
