Hurricane Harvey

From the Lower Susquehanna Synod:

August 28, 2017
We have an opportunity to stand by our neighbors as Hurricane Harvey, one of the most catastrophic storms to hit the country in more than a decade, continues to affect large areas of Texas.
Our response as the ELCA:
Lutheran Disaster Response’s affiliate is actively present, collaborating with community leaders and officials to initiate the proper responses, particularly the long-term recovery efforts. Together, we have a strong history of working with disasters in the Gulf Coast area. Recovery efforts are expected to take years, and Lutheran Disaster Response will be there to accompany those affected through every phase of this disaster.
What we can do:
Pray
Please pray for the people who have been affected and are in the path of Hurricane Harvey. May God’s healing presence give them peace and hope in their time of need.
Give
Gifts to Lutheran Disaster Response, designated for “Hurricane Response – United States” will be used entirely (100 percent) for this disaster until the response is complete. Together, we can help provide immediate and long-lasting support. Give today to support the needs in this response and others like it.
Gifts to “US Hurricane Relief” will be used to assist those affected by the hurricane until the response is complete.
