Collection for Disaster Assistance
In the wake of Hurricane Matthew we are collecting funds through a special offering to help the many people and communities devastated by the flooding, with initial contributions to support efforts in East Tarboro and Princeville, and in Haiti - all areas that have been hit so hard in this disaster. The Outreach Committee will direct the funds to meet the greatest needs. Presbyterian Disaster Assistance is already at work in communities devastated by flood waters. We are also in contact with our mission partner, Haiti Outreach Ministry, in Haiti. Please make checks payable to White Memorial Presbyterian Church and note “disaster assistance” on the check.
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) provides emergency relief and short-term recovery in disaster impacted areas through our partner, ACT Alliance and its members. Immediate response provides needed food, water, supplies and medicine to impacted towns and villages. As long term recovery plans are developed, PDA will accompany and further financially support our partners in disaster areas to insure that a comprehensive recovery is sustained.
Give. Act. Pray. Find out more at www.pcusa.org/pda or Facebook PDAcares.
