Hurricanes Irma
and Maria Relief

The situation:
Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria are among the most powerful storms ever recorded in the Atlantic, leaving widespread damage across Florida, Georgia, Puerto Rico, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, the U.S. Virgin Islands and other locations in the Caribbean.

Our response:
As a church, we’re standing by our neighbors who have been affected as they begin the long road to recovery. Lutheran Disaster Response’s affiliates are collaborating with community leaders and government officials to respond. Please give now to support this response.

Your gifts ensure that our church will be able to provide help and hope for those whose homes have been devastated or who have been otherwise affected by these hurricanes for years to come. Together, we can help provide immediate and long-lasting support.

What you can do:

Please pray for the people who have been affected by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria. May God's healing presence give them peace and hope in their time of need.

Gifts designated to “Hurricane Response” will be used to assist those affected by these hurricanes until the response is complete.
