Hurricane Dorian Disaster Response

Hurricane Dorian Disaster Response

The ELCA’s Lutheran Disaster Response recently sent out this electronic alert on the status of Hurricane Dorian; See the message below to find out how you can give and support efforts to help those in need in the wake of the hurricane.

Dear friends,
Hurricane Dorian has hit with devastating force, causing major damage and a growing number of reported deaths in the Bahamas, and inundating the Carolinas with flooding and storm surge. Lutheran Disaster Response is communicating with the Florida-Bahamas Synod, the South Carolina Synod, the North Carolina Synod, Lutheran Services Carolinas and other partners, who are assessing the immediate needs and initiating a response. While the extent of the damage is not yet known, we will accompany impacted communities from immediate relief through long-term recovery. This is our commitment as a church. 

Please give to Lutheran Disaster Response today. Your gifts ensure that our church will be able to provide help and hope for those whose lives have been devastated by Hurricane Dorian. 

Stay connected to the latest events and our response to this and other disasters through our Facebook page. Please join me in prayer and partnership, and use this bulletin insert to help spread the word in your congregation.

In Christ’s service,

Daniel Rift
