Presbyterian Disaster Assistance is delivering immediate aid to those impacted by Hurricane Florence on the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. The storm’s path is cutting across areas still recovering from Hurricane Matthew (2016). PDA is deploying teams to affected presbyteries to meet with Presbyterian and community leadership to assist in coordinating relief efforts and mucking out homes and churches. After initial needs are addressed, PDA will remain – providing spiritual and emotional care and long-term recovery to address the unmet needs of those impacted. Designated gifts for US Hurricane Response supplement the One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) offering to enable a significant, ongoing response to hurricanes that affect the United States.
Thousands of Hygiene Kits, Blankets and Emergency Cleanup Buckets are being deployed and distributed to those in affected areas. This is often the first assistance people receive. Donations may be made directly to Church World Service.
