In the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, many organizations are pulling together resources for rescue missions and providing supplies for those affected. There is no doubt that the clean up and recovery process will last well into 2018, and so these relief efforts will need ongoing support.
In addition to praying daily for those in crisis, below are some avenues for monetary support. Also, check out this letter from the EPC which mentions our congregation in Sheepshead Bay.
1.) Resurrection Brooklyn has a disaster relief fund. You can contribute here.
3.) The EPC has set up an Emergency Relief Fund. In collaboration with the Presbytery of the Gulf South, donations to the fund will be sent to EPC churches in the greater Houston, Florida and Puerto Rico areas affected by the storm. Click here to donate online (choose “Emergency Relief” from the first pulldown menu.
Please consider giving generously to those in need.
