Welcome to the forums, chooper28.
See if you can borrow a good two-speaker PA system. A friend of mine had one that worked well for a family movie night we had a year ago. Granted, it was in a large meeting hall, but the sound would have been decent for an outdoor viewing too. I forget the specific brand, but I'm sure the stuff that they have nowadays for schools or businesses will work in a pinch.
For generators, I saw a Honda generator being used for an Arts & Crafts fair last month. Small and surprisingly very quiet. I think it was a Honda, but I may be wrong. Definitely a Japanese-made generator though.
For outdoor screens, I've seen others here use bedsheets. Just staple on a king-sized sheet to a frame (or sew four together).
Don't worry so much about A/V perfection, most of the masses won't even notice screen door effect, contrast, reference sound, etc. You could probably get away with a SVGA rez pic, LOL!
This is quite a gesture of good-will on your part - kudos and God Bless!
