Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) is working with its partners to provide relief to those in the wake of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. As people in Barbuda, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Florida and other areas nearby begin digging out from the storm, the PDA is already engaged.
In this season of devastating storms — the likes of which are rarely seen — will you help us expand our witness to the compassionate Christ by standing in the GAP?
Support Presbyterian Disaster Assistance’s emergency response and long-term recovery work in the areas affected. Gifts can be designated in two ways: Hurricane Harvey (DR000169-Harvey) and Atlantic Regional Hurricanes (DR000194). You can also give with a credit card by visiting presbyterianmission.org/GIVE-Harvey or by phone at 800-872-3283.
Put together Gift of the Heart kits for survivors in the affected areas — hygiene kits and cleanup buckets are especially needed. For more information, go to pda.pcusa.org/page/kits/
Contact the PDA Call Center to be notified of volunteer opportunities. Call 866-732-6121 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
God, our Shelter, in the challenging days to come, work through us to bring relief and respite, comfort and hope to those who grieve the loss of family, home, and safety. Give us and those we serve faith to walk on through weary days of rebuilding. May our generosity in prayer and in tangible signs of support overflow more than floodwaters, to sustain your work of healing and rebuilding and to bring comfort and strength to those who suffer. Amen.
